Journalism students interested in learning the skills of reporting business and economics news across platforms have the opportunity to focus on economic, business and consumer reporting. Students will learn how to utilize financial data analysis in reporting.

Similarly, students with this interest are encouraged to take basic courses in other subject areas that will give them important skills, such as basic accounting, or advanced economics and finance. Students will gain the skills to work covering Wall Street, government economics, consumer and personal finance issues, and local business.
