Undergraduate Majors, Minors & Programs of Study
Journalism's essentials include the ability to focus on what's important, the skill to write clearly, concisely and entertainingly as well as the background to bring broad knowledge to the events of the day. The WIU Journalism Program covers these bases with a liberal arts framework taught by faculty who are experienced journalism professionals and scholars.
Students are able to choose a specialization in one of three areas to add to the Journalism foundation:
- public relations
Journalism majors can combine their major with any offered minor; typical choices are other liberal arts topics or Broadcasting, Communication, or Graphic Communication.
Our faculty work on the cutting edge of literature, language, and culture, sharing their interesting research in courses and individual study.
All are dedicated teachers often recognized by Western for excellence in teaching.
