Journalism Minor

PEAKS | Professional Studies & Enhancements |

The Journalism minor presents the fundamentals of the profession. Classes introduce the student to the history of the profession, examine ethical questions that journalists confront, and explore the remarkable transformation that contemporary media are undergoing. Each student minoring in journalism is expected to work on a publishing project, contribute to campus publications, and complete an internship. Working journalists regularly visit the classes to share their experiences. All the courses are writing intensive and include both a presentation of research and reporting as well as a portfolio of papers.
