Journalism and Media Studies Minor
The interdisciplinary minor in Journalism and Media Studies is designed to provide students with an opportunity to explore the theory and practice of Journalism and Media Communications as it is being produced on the ground today.
Students in the minor program will benefit from working with the many facilities in the college which include a theater, sound recording technology studios, music practice rooms, and specialized art studios. Students will also benefit from collaboration with The UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion, which, together with its partner The Boston Herald, conducts and reports on political surveys, hosts debates, and sponsors other political events on campus.
The Journalism and Media Studies minor is open to all undergraduates and consists of an interdisciplinary program of 18 credits of required and elective courses.
