You are considered a “pre-major” until you’ve completed four journalism courses:

  1. JOUR 107 — All Things Media: Foundations
  2. JOUR 108 — All Things Media: Design
  3. JOUR 207  — All Things Media: Words and Numbers
  4. JOUR 208  — All Things Media: Images and Sounds

Once you have completed these four courses with a C or better, have a journalism GPA of 2.5 as well as a university GPA of 2.5, you can apply to be a journalism major by filling out a Declaration of Major form. They are available online and in the journalism Dean’s office (RSJ301).
