We need a Journalism Program

While the Media Studies department offers several classes that tackle issues about journalism, the major is limited to Film Studies and Media Policy and Ethics as primary concentrations and additionally does not offer a minor program. It is widely known that funding is an issue, but this area of study is not only growing in necessity but also should be expected of a prestige university among the ranks of Ivy League and other top academic institutions. Additionally, our English department is famously prestigious and known for its value, so as a university that prides itself on this we should invest socially and economically in a program for journalism, even if just a minor. Our student newspapers are not enough training for students who wish to go into this field of work and a program like this would also benefit these papers.
