As a final course, preferably in the final semester, students must take a journalism practicum that adheres to a specific plan for reporting and writing in one of the following areas: business, religion, education, science and health, public service or government.


The ethical responsibilities of journalism challenge the practitioner to cultivate the broad areas of knowledge that will allow for informed reporting and investigation, so journalism majors must complete a minor in another university department where the potential exists to develop knowledge as context for journalistic practice.
