Ethnically diverse group of students in classroom

The journalism minor teaches reporting, writing and editing skills and the basics of  video journalism, and provides an overview of the news media as an industry. Now a part of The Urban Studies Department, this 18-credit minor makes use of current technology to access information and explores new methods of news distribution.

The primary goals of the minor are training students for professional careers in journalism and producing well-informed news consumers. At the same time, with its strong emphasis on good writing, the journalism program complements such majors as English, media studies, political science, urban studies, history, economics and sociology, helping students learn to write clearly about complicated issues.
All journalism courses are taught by individuals with experience as working journalists, who bring their expertise and career contacts from the newsroom to the classroom.
