Why Study Journalism at Saint Joseph's College?
SJC’s Journalism minor is an excellent accompaniment to any major and should be considered by students who wish to pursue careers in writing, reporting, and editing for the print or broadcast media. Our Journalism minor stresses communication skills in newspaper writing, editing, and publishing, as well as coursework in journalism ethics and media law.
While we know the significance of classroom learning, SJC also recognizes the importance of knowledge application. That is why we encourage our Journalism students to staff The Observer, the College’s student-produced newspaper, and pursue internships in their areas of interest. As a result, our Journalism graduates are more marketable because they already have practical work experience when they begin to search for jobs.
Dedication to Excellence
SJC’s Core Program has proven to be advantageous for our Journalism students. Because our Core Program is writing-intensive, our Journalism minors earn 65 credit hours of writing experience. Thus, our Journalism students have more writing experience than Journalism minors of other institutions.
Faculty and Class Size
Our Journalism minors work with both our Department of English and our Department of Communication. The departments include faculty who have published articles, fiction, and poetry in a variety of respected journals and magazines, as well as faculty members who have experience from states all over the country. With classes ranging from 10 to 25 students, Journalism minors develop as both writers and thinkers.
