Media Studies Minor

Nearly any student would benefit from a media studies degree. Our program is flexible so you can weave it into your education in a way that works for you. We offer a media studies minor for UO students outside the SOJC.

Media Studies Minor Requirements

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 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.
