The IPFW Journalism Program offers two minors. A journalism minor provides underpinning for those interested in various media; the public relations minor described later in this section is more particularly defined and will appeal to those wishing to concentrate in corporate communications or advertising/public relations.
These minors are especially appropriate for media and public communication or English communication media majors. 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.
To earn the journalism minor, you must complete each course with a grade of C or better and must complete at least 9 credits as resident credit at IPFW.
