The minor allows students in other majors to explore their interest in Journalism. The program focuses on the six core courses of the Journalism major, introducing students to the rights and responsibilities of the profession as well as to its technological and other tools. Students will become better news and information gatherers, writers, photographers, editors and producers and hone their critical thinking skills as they become more sophisticated citizens and news consumers. Beyond the core, students are encouraged to take advanced courses in specialty areas.
