Journalism Students Completing Additional Minors

Journalism Students Completing Additional Minors

Journalism students are encouraged to complete a minor area of study outside of journalism. A minor can complement your journalism studies with additional knowledge and understanding about a particular area of interest. Generally, a minor requires 15 credits in a specific department, approximately one-half of the course load required for a major.

How to Apply for a Minor

  • Contact the department in which you would like to pursue a minor. They will share specific requirements of that minor.
  • Fill out a minor form listing your proposed course of study. Each department has its own minor form.
  • Have an adviser in your minor department sign the minor form.
  • Submit the signed minor form to the minor department’s Academic Unit. The minor’s Academic Unit will certify your minor and it will be posted on your transcript upon graduation.
