Shepherd University recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of the field of journalism and has thus constructed a minor that reflects the variety of skills and the knowledge base necessary for the success in this dynamic field. The primary objectives of the print journalism minor include the following:

  1. To provide students with the language and communication skills necessary for success in this competitive field;
  2. To provide students with the technical skills required for understanding the nature of news writing and news production;
  3. To provide students with the practical experience necessary to function in the real world of journalism; and
  4. To help students develop the critical thinking skills and reflective insights needed for analyzing, reporting, and writing print news stories.
