Description of the major
The primary goal of this major is to educate students for careers as reporters, editors, producers, and photographers with newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and online and in the publications and public information departments of government and industry. Courses in the major are about evenly divided between those emphasizing professional skills and procedures used by journalists and those emphasizing an understanding of journalism and mass communications as they relate to society. Course sequences include print, broadcast, and journalism. Journalism students must choose a minor from outside the College of Communications.
