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.
