The Department of Journalism offers three minor options: the general journalism minor, the photojournalism minor and the journalism design minor.

Admission into the minor. Students are expected to formally declare a minor. With the assistance of an advisor in the minor department, students should complete the “Declaration of Minor” form before or during the third year of full-time enrollment.

Grade point average. A 2.0 grade point average in the minor is required for completion of the degree. The minor GPA is calculated based on all courses applicable to the minor that the student has attempted at UA and all work attempted applicable to the minor throughout the entire higher education career.
