Cover Everything


All students completing Beloit College’s popular and distinguished journalism minor are required to complete an internship at a media organization. The program welcomes students from the natural sciences, sociology, government, and theater arts (to name a few) to study journalism and encourages them to gear their journalistic endeavours to their major fields.

We want our students to learn the intersections between theory and practice through internships at newspapers, television stations, and public relations offices.

The Minor

Journalism at Beloit is a minor concentration consisting of six courses. Two of these are print journalism courses; the third is in a different dimension of communication such as broadcast journalism, photography, or television broadcasting. Students also must take one supporting course relevant to the prospective career interest of the student and a course with an international or multicultural dimension. Journalism minors are also required to gain practical experience at a campus publication or in a professional setting outside campus.
