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.
