Journalism, Minor

The Journalism minor prepares students to work in a variety of employment positions and industries that utilize research and communication for storytelling purposes. The Journalism minor pushes students to understand the knowledge and skills of journalism, improve the communities that journalists and storytellers serve, engage with stakeholders and audiences, and improve their own news literacy. Students pursuing a Journalism minor learn what it means to be a responsible journalist; they also identify journalistic principles, ethical values, loyalties, and laws, and how and why these impact their work. They also learn how to translate journalistic behaviors and storytelling practices to their audiences and stakeholders. The Journalism minor assists students in sustaining pro-democracy and civically engaged communities and stories.
