Literary Journalism, Minor
The Literary Journalism minor was created for students who wish to study literary journalism as a complement to another major within or outside of the Humanities. Literary Journalism minors are asked to take a comprehensive look at the theory, history, and context of literary journalism. Among other forms, they study narratives, memoirs, profiles, histories, and personal essays, in subject areas as varied as science, politics, justice, travel, sports, food, and popular culture. The minor is excellent preparation for students interested in the many careers requiring sophisticated writing and communication skills.
