With an ever-growing array of information options available, and with the news media making news in the early days of the new administration in Washington, interest in the workings of journalism has never been higher. This minor is intended for those students who wish for a sophisticated media literacy, an understanding of the field that goes deeper than what can be gained in our popular Understanding Today's News course.
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 both journalism studies and journalism practice must take eight unique courses. No double counting. Journalism majors are not eligible for a minor in journalism studies.
