What Can I Do with a Minor in Journalism and Documentary Studies?

You choose a minor with your advisor's guidance to complement your major and your personal academic goals. You may be required to complete a minor in a field different than your major.

You may use the same course or courses to satisfy requirements in both a major and a minor as long as at least fifty percent of the units in the minor have a different prefix than the major. You may also use the same course or courses to meet both liberal studies and minor requirements as long as you meet all requirements for the minor.
