The Journalism Minor provides students from all academic majors the opportunity to acquire essential skills of reporting, writing, and multimedia news production to become knowledgeable and effective journalists with marketable areas of expertise. Students minoring in journalism will come to recognize connections between different disciplines and the media and learn how to use knowledge and skills acquired in other coursework to identify, report on, and clearly explain newsworthy stories to an audience of non-specialists through a variety of media.
