Based on severe state higher education budget cuts, the Department of Journalism has been eliminated as a separate department and academic major and minor. Courses related to journalism have been moved to the Department of Language and Communication. Prospective students interested in mass communications may pursue a bachelor’s degree in communication or liberal arts.
Current journalism majors or minors have until 2012 to complete their eliminated degrees. HOWEVER, All MAJOR requirements need to be completed by SUMMER 2011.
