College of Liberal Arts 

Neff Hall 230 ~ 260-481-6825


A journalism minor provides underpinning for those interested in various media. This minor is not open to students pursuing the journalism concentration in the communication major.  Those with a desire to write or report in some content area should consider a major in the area itself. Reporters need a content area such as political science or history; basic science students will discover that science writing is an especially valuable and challenging career goal.

Student Responsibility


You are responsible for ensuring that you satisfy all graduation requirements specified for each selected program.  Thus, it is essential that you develop a thorough understanding of the required courses, academic policies, and procedures governing your academic career.  If you cannot complete all program requirements by your stated graduation date but fail to remove those from your plan of study, the Registrar’s Office in consultation with your academic advisor will remove unmet pursuits from your plan of study. Changing curricular records during the graduation term of application may affect state or federal financial aid awards. All requests for exceptions to specific requirements must be made in writing and may be granted only by written approval from the appropriate chair or dean.
