Why Choose the Journalism Certificate?
The Journalism certificate provides students with training in basic journalistic writing and editing, serving as an excellent complement to communications-related majors.
This Journalism certificate is open to any student admitted to Ferris State University, except those pursuing a Journalism and Technical Communication B.S.. The certificate is designed to complement any Ferris major program, or to provide additional post-baccalaureate skills and training.
Students desiring to complete this certificate should file an official declaration with the certificate advisor as soon as possible, and meet with that advisor regularly. This certificate requires a minimum of 12 credits of course work with a minimum GPA of 2.0 in these courses. At least 50 percent of the credits of the certificate must be Ferris State University credits. No more than six credits from this certificate may count towards completion of an academic major.
