Journalism Practice, Minor

Are you interested in getting hands-on experience reporting, writing and editing news stories, and using digital tools to tell tales with more than words? The Journalism Practice Minor provides you with the skills to craft stories while allowing you to specialize in the field(s) of journalism that you enjoy most.

With the explosion of websites, podcasts and social media, more and more people find themselves using the skills of a journalist in the dissemination of information in both their private and professional lives. This minor is intended for those students who wish to bring more professionalism and sophistication to the things they post online, or hope to offer a skill set that will make them more versatile and employable in their chosen field. It will also serve those who may be considering a career in journalism, but find themselves too late in their college careers to switch majors.
