Bachelor of Arts in Journalism

The journalism major requires 40-41 semester hours in Journalism: 21 hours of core requirements, 12-13 hours in one of three options (print, broadcast, or public relations), 3 hours of journalism electives, and 4 hours of practicum. Students may take a total of eight hours of practicum coursework; however, only four will count toward the major. The 12 hours in any option must include the pertinent writing course.

Major Options

Recommended courses for each option are listed, with substitutions possible with the approval of the student’s advisor and department head. Moreover, Journalism requires two semesters (6 hours) of one foreign language; and all majors must know how to type on a computer keyboard.
