Journalism, Minor

A journalism minor will prepare you to produce compelling, ethical media for whatever career you choose. Whether you become a lawyer, teacher, business owner, scientist or journalist, knowing how to write, produce audio and video and use social media professionally will help you communicate effectively and accurately to your audience.

The Reynolds School of Journalism has a tradition of strong professional orientation with an emphasis on hands-on skills training. Many professors have worked in journalistic fields - print, broadcast, visual and interactive media, advertising and public relations - and many continue to be active in these pursuits. Instruction emphasizes a strong liberal arts basis in addition to professional skills and requires students to complete professional internships in their chosen journalistic fields.
