Minor in Journalism

The journalism minor is a complement to many majors and prepares students to apply journalistic skills to many fields, or produce journalism with an intense focus in another area. Minors will take several skills courses that provide them with experiential learning opportunities and can expect to create a significant body of work as part of the journalism minor.

Minors must complete the four core courses of the minor and be enrolled in the Reporting course before enrolling in any elective course in the Department of Journalism.

The journalism department welcomes minors who are committed to significant journalism instruction while they are specializing in majors that educate them in broad subject areas that may relate to news coverage. Students should recognize that it will likely take four regular semesters to complete the journalism minor. Such students are strongly encouraged to become full participants in the TCU Student Media.
