JOURNALISM

The journalism program is geared to today's journalism, preparing graduates to work in the many modern communication media as reporters, editors, news photographers, advertising representatives, radio and television news personnel, or in public relations. As a journalist you can be where events are happening, communicating information on important issues and current events. How well you do your job will depend on a number of factors; a strong educational background is perhaps the most important.

The journalism program offers majors and minors in the College of Arts and Communication for students wishing to enter some phase of professional journalism, and in the College of Education for those wishing to teach high school journalism. Both programs are grounded strongly in liberal arts courses.

SPEECH

Speech communication focuses upon how, why, and with what effects people communicate through verbal and nonverbal messages. Students of speech communication develop understanding and skill in communication processes as they occur within and among individuals, groups, organizations, and cultures. Graduates are active in sales, public relations, advertising, customer relations, personnel, broadcasting, filmmaking, high school and college teaching, volunteer agencies and fund raising, law and communication and consultation in business, industry, and government. Speech communication graduates can enter a variety of careers because the competencies they acquire have broad application.

MAJOR/EMPHASES

A 2.00 cumulative GPA is required to declare the Speech major. A minimum 2.25 GPA is required in the major for graduation. The major GPA is based upon both the grades for courses completed at UW-W and those for courses accepted in transfer. Transfer students need a transfer 2.00 GPA to declare the major.

Applied activities in speech communication. Credit for activities may be earned in radio (166-230) or Cable TV (166-231, 166-331).

Four of the 6 credits from speech communication activities may count toward the 36 or 37 credits necessary for the major.
