Media and Journalism minor
Students majoring outside the school may earn a minor in the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media. Program acceptance is limited to 35 sophomores, juniors and seniors collectively every application cycle. This prevents registration pressure on required courses for majors. Priority will be given to students who have previously taken two or more MEJO courses within their desired concentration and have a 3.4 cumulative GPA or higher..
Applicants designate one of two minor concentration offered within the school: Advertising/Public Relations (APR) and Journalism (JRN). Prerequisites must be met for selected minor courses. MEJO minors who enroll in MEJO 153 will take the school’s Usage & Grammar Test as part of the course, but are not required to pass the test with a score of 70 or better as MEJO majors are.
In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must:
• Complete at least 15 credit hours with C grades or better in MEJO courses.
• Earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000 in the minor core requirements.
