Minor in Media Studies

The minor in media studies gives students an overview of the role of the media in society.

Students with a major in the School of Journalism and Communication cannot also earn a minor in media studies. (Students who declared the minor in communication studies before May 20, 2013, are exempt from this rule.)

Students who want to minor in media studies should declare the minor online, on the school's website. Students may submit petitions to apply other journalism courses to the minor. A minimum University of Oregon GPA of 2.00 is required to declare the minor.
