Major in Journalism, BA

The Board of Governors for Higher Education granted CCSU licensure for the BA in Journalism in May 2009. The BA in Journalism prepares students for entry into journalism and related fields where information-gathering, writing, editing, and awareness of public affairs are important. Students choose one of two tracks, print or broadcast, but all students receive training in multimedia reporting.  Freshmen may declare journalism as their major in their first semester; however, all students must pass ENG 110 Freshman Composition, or its equivalent, with at least a C  prior to taking the first journalism course, JRN 200.  For more information, contact Dr. Vivian B. Martin, program coordinator, 832-2776, martinv@ccsu.edu.
