Students must first gain admission to the University. Additional requirements for the major and minor are listed below.
Strong writing skills are essential to the student's success in the division's journalism curriculum and later in the profession of journalism. Students may enroll in journalism classes as first-year students. Those seeking permission to major or minor in the Division of Journalism must have completed 24 hours of study, which may include transfer hours. Students must have completed DISC 1312 (Introduction to Academic Discourse) and DISC 1313 (Inquiry Seminar) with a minimum G.P.A. of 3.00 (B) in both courses. Students are required to take JOUR 2103 before further journalism study, and they must declare their major or minor before taking JOUR 2312. Students transferring from other universities must have completed equivalent courses and obtained the equivalent G.P.A. in those courses before they can be considered a major candidate in the Division of Journalism.
Scholarships: Honors Scholarships are awarded each year to outstanding students who intend to major in journalism. Other scholarships are available to journalism students through a variety of foundations and gifts to the division.
