The minor in journalism consists of 18 hours. JOU 270 and JOU 278 are required of all minors. JOU 270 is a prerequisite for advanced writing courses; JOU 278 can be taken at any time. Students can complete the minor by taking four additional journalism course electives. They are also encouraged to consider their specific interests and how best to prepare for opportunities in specialized journalism or writing. In that regard, two electives could come from upper-level, non-journalism interdisciplinary courses that would enable further specialized expertise (explanation below under Electives). Pre-approval of such elective credits must be made by the Director of Journalism.
