Journalism

The journalism program is designed for students interested in pursuing professional careers and further study in such areas as reporting, editing, media design, photojournalism, broadcasting, public relations, and media law. The journalism minor requires a three-hour internship or approved alternative. For journalism minors also majoring in English, the internship can serve as the experiential component required by the English major.
