Journalism and Mass Communication Minor
Journalism and Mass Communication
The Journalism and Mass Communication Minor introduces students to the theoretical framework of the fundamentals of journalism and mass communication and gives students the opportunity to develop professional skills in information gathering, critical thinking and analysis, writing, editing, and reporting. The electives allow students to choose an area of interest for further development.
