New Concentration in Journalism
the college of arts and sciences
The American Studies Program now offers a slate of journalism courses with UN ("University") numbers in the 220-230 range. They include, for example, UN 230, News Writing; UN 231, Feature Writing; UN 227, Broadcast Writing; UN 229, Introduction to Magazine Writing; UN 234, News Ethics; and UN 233, Advanced Journalism. These are workshop-sized courses taught by experienced journalists, emphasizing hands-on professional knowledge and training. They are open to students in all majors and schools, and you do not need to minor in American Studies to take them, but American Studies minors with an area of concentration within the minor other than journalism can count one of these UN journalism courses toward the minor, and American Studies minors who declare journalism as their area of concentration within the minor can count up to three of these courses toward the minor.
