The Journalism minor emphasizes a combination of theoretical and applied courses.

The minor in Journalism requires the completion of six courses.

Internship Requirements


Only Journalism minors with a 3.00 GPA after the completion of the second semester of Sophomore year are eligible to take JRN 475 - Internship in Journalism.

Normally, a 3.0 GPA is required for permission to intern. Exceptions may be granted by the Coordinator of Internships:
a) When the GPA in the major or minor is higher than 3.0 and the overall GPA suffered from a single bad semester.
b) When the internship will not be calculated in completing the major or minor and the Coordinator of Internships judges that the student is unusually well prepared otherwise for the internship experience.

Interns must spend a minimum of eight (8) hours a week (112 hours total) at the internship site and be evaluated by the site supervisor. Written reports are to be submitted to the Coordinator every other week and a research paper or other project must be completed and turned in to the Coordinator by a predetermined deadline.

Interns must meet with the Coordinator at least three times during the semester to discuss the progress of the internship, readings, or the research project. This may be done electronically during the Summer Session when the site is at a distance.

No more than one Journalism internship course, for a total of three credits, may be counted toward the minor requirements:

All JRN 475 internships earn three credits, even if total hours exceed 112.

Students doing a summer-fall “split”  internship may not do another internship during the same semester s/he is completing work for the “split.”
