Support your major with a minor in Journalism

"Without a serious study of journalism, there can be no understanding of citizenship, democracy, or community." ~ Roy Peter Clark, Poynter Institute

Eckerd students from all sorts of majors – Marine Science, Math, International Relations, Communication, Political Science, Creative Writing, History, Environmental Studies and Philosophy—are discovering the benefits of a Journalism minor at Eckerd College.

A Journalism minor provides future employers with evidence of your ability to:
  • Publish quality writing under the pressures of a deadline
  • Problem-solve through tough ethical issues
  • Effectively manage your time
  • Copy edit and use the latest in software programs such as Indesign and Photoshop
  • Lead a team, if you’re one of The Current’s editors

Whatever your major, support it with a minor in Journalism.
