Journalism courses provide the student with a diversified program of study in journalism. Courses in news gathering, writing, editing and photojournalism are considered basics; thereafter, the student branches into more specialized areas. In the journalism sequence, courses may be grouped to meet career objectives in reporting-editing, photojournalism, advertising and public relations.
