A Minor in Journalism is an excellent complement to a Major in many fields.
Employers in a very wide range of professions value the highly transferable skills the Journalism Minor offers: communicating clearly in a wide range of formats, working in a multimedia environment, and conducting relevant research.
Students with a Major in a different field and a Minor in Journalism are well-positioned to communicate about that field in a variety of ways and a variety of venues, including within their chosen profession, with the public, or as a specialist journalist.
Students have lots of flexibility in choosing among courses focusing on writing, photography and video work, interactive graphics, and more.
Students pursuing a minor in Journalism must be admitted to the Faculty of Arts.
Students pursuing this minor must declare their intention prior to graduation.
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree must complete all requirements in the Bachelor of Arts framework in addition to their major or minor program requirements.
The Minor in Journalism requires completion of a minimum of 27 credits as follows:
