Pursuing a B.A. in Journalism at Baylor



"In my classes, I'm able to create things, instead of only learning theory. As a junior, I've already developed a portfolio of my photography, designed publications and completed an internship." -Rachel Scott


The bachelor of arts degree allows students to explore a broad-based liberal arts curriculum while also earning a skills- and theory-based journalism degree that's backed up with practical experience.

We require 30 major hours for students beginning the program Fall 2009 or later. Students entering the program before Fall 2009 should refer to their Bearweb degree audits and see their counselors in the department. Majors can select from the following sequences:

Electives are available in journalism, new media, photojournalism, public relations, advertising and broadcast journalism. Students in the News-Editorial sequence should select electives in journalism, photojournalism and broadcast journalism. Students in the Public Relations sequence should select electives in PR and advertising.
