double major

Journalism students in the Bachelor of Arts program are encouraged to consider a double major. Students must satisfy the requirements for both majors, and courses required for one major may not be used to complete requirements for the second major, but most liberal arts majors require between 30-36 credits for the B.A. degree. Double major students have selected, in combination with journalism, most other disciplines taught at Southern. Any combination adds breadth of knowledge as well as specialized information and skills to a journalism career. If you are interested, consult your faculty adviser early during your college years.
