Journalism Practice, Minor
With the explosion of websites, podcasts and social media, more and more people find themselves using the skills of a journalist in the dissemination of information in both their private and professional lives. This minor is intended for those students who wish to bring more professionalism and sophistication to the things they post online, or hope to offer a skill set that will make them more versatile and employable in their chosen field. It will also serve those who may be considering a career in journalism, but find themselves too late in their college careers to switch majors.
Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
Note: Any student wishing to satisfy a minor in Journalism Studies and Journalism Practice must take eight unique courses. No double counting. Journalism majors are not eligible for a minor in Journalism Practice.
