The journalism minor at Saint Joseph’s University (for non-English majors) provides students with a wide array of news-writing, reporting, editing and multimedia skills. Or, you can pursue an English major with a journalism track to get a broader understanding of journalism history, ethics, diversity issues and legal principles.
Along with training in news gathering techniques and digital journalism practices, you may take special topics courses in mobile journalism, global journalism, photojournalism, journalism ethics, sports reporting, food writing and college media.
The program also prepares you for a journalism profession through internships, an optional affiliated semester in Washington D.C., summer research fellowships, study abroad opportunities, and work experience with the University's student newspaper, “The Hawk.”
These experiences and courses offer you a skill-set and knowledge base that enable you to succeed in graduate school, law school, the education sector, politics, publishing, public relations, advertising and many other areas.
