Why Choose the Multi-Media Journalism Minor?
In the digital age, communication involves far more than pen and paper. It includes audio and video media and publishing on the World Wide Web. The Multi-media Journalism minor prepares students to practice journalism in the various media used today. This minor teaches students to develop the writing skills needed for professional work but also to do design and production work in the electronic media. This minor would be an excellent complement to communications-related majors.
This Multi-Media Journalism minor is open to any student admitted to Ferris State University and pursuing a baccalaureate degree except those in the Technical Professional Communication, B.S. or the Journalism and Technical Concentration, B.S. Students may use only one-third of the credits in a minor that overlap with the student's major. For example: If a minor is 18 credits, 6 credits may be applied to the minor that are also used in the major. Students may apply 6 credit hours of overlap between minors.
An academic minor may only be awarded upon completion of a baccalaureate degree at Ferris State. This minor requires a minimum of 21 credits with a minimum 2.0 grade average in these courses.
Also, 50 percent of the credits for a minor must be taught by Ferris State University.
