Minor in Journalism Studies

Minor in Journalism Studies

University of King's College

Curiosity, a willingness to ask questions, and a desire to find and tell stories–these are the building blocks for those who want to study journalism.

You can pursue your interest in journalism as a complement to studies in a King’s Honours Program or in King’s and Dalhousie’s shared faculties of Science and Arts and Social Science with a minor in journalism studies.

You will learn about story-telling based on factual evidence, reporting, journalistic style, interviewing, and copy editing. They learn how to gather information and to craft that information into a compelling story.

Arts Students

Students who wish to take a Minor in Journalism Studies of a four-year major or honours Arts degree must meet the requirements for the program in their chosen discipline and successfully complete 24 credit hours in journalism, including the core requirements and 12 credit hours in electives.
