Journalism - Minor

The Department of Communication offers a minor in Journalism, as well as a major in  University Studies-Journalism Studies.  The minor in Journalism provides a background in reporting, from interviewing to on-line records searches, and in writing, from deadline news stories to longer analytical and feature pieces.  Video production for the web is an integral part of news writing in our program, along with the opportunity for specialized, advanced writing classes in political reporting, literary nonfiction, sports reporting, arts and entertainment journalism, magazine writing, and a new course in backpack journalism.  The required journalism internship affords students another means to acquire writing and production experience. Students also can get in-depth experience in the field of new media, particularly blogging.
