Minors for Journalism Majors
All journalism majors must complete a minor offered in another department of the College of Arts and Sciences or a concentration from a school outside Arts and Sciences. Requirements for a minor range from 18-27 hours, as determined by individual departments.

A concentration must be a minimum of 18 hours, at least nine of which must be upper level (3000/4000). A concentration must come from one of the following schools: business, education, engineering and computer science, or music, and must be approved by the department chair.

Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in journalism courses used for the major and in other courses used for the minor or concentration.

*Students beginning the program before Fall 2009 should refer to their Bearweb degree audit to verify their required courses as degree plans change.
