Changing your major to Journalism or adding Journalism as a minor

Because the Journalism major is in high demand, students who want to change their major to journalism or add journalism as a minor must complete the following steps:

  1. Find out if Journalism is the right major for you
  2. Read the Journalism Student Handbook (PDF) to find out what a Journalism major/minor entails. You can find the link to the current handbook on the department homepage.
  3. Majors must attend a mandatory orientation. For students changing their major in the Fall, the orientation is Friday before Thanksgiving break. For students changing their major in the Spring, the orientation is the 3rd Friday in April. They are both held from 10-12 in HUM 303.
  4. Change your major in your student center.
