The Minor in Broadcast Journalism, which is administered by the School of Journalism, provides students a strong foundation for a career in broadcast journalism. Using cutting-edge technology, students gain experience in audio and video storytelling, on-air performance, and the production of high-end newscasts, replicating the real-world of visual media for television and other digital platforms.

The minor is available to students who are enrolled in the Journalism major at Michigan State University. With the approval of the department and college that administer the student’s degree program, the courses that are used to satisfy the minor may also be used to satisfy the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.
