Mass communication majors are required to take such core courses as journalism ethics, communication law, and news writing (this class serves as the reporting staff for The Wayne Stater). Those majors who select the journalism concentration are required to take 15 hours of core classes, including 6 hours of workshop. Workshop students can enroll in 1, 2, or 3 hours, depending on their workload at The Wayne Stater.
Journalism majors are also required to successfully complete internships prior to graduation. Our majors have been placed in a wide variety of communications-based internships throughout the country, and graduates often return to those employers in a full-time capacity.
