COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M University will once again offer journalism as a major.
The minor in journalism the school currently offers has become increasingly more popular with students over the years, according to Director of Journalism Studies Dale Rice. "It's grown in five years from fewer than 20 students, to more than 80," said Rice.
The new program is expected to be rigorous. Only 25 students a year will be accepted and every student will be required to have two minors with one of those minors outside of the College of Liberal Arts.
Print-journalism will be the focus of the program, with no classes in broadcast journalism offered. The school plans to teach traditional print journalism along with the developing web-based media.
The program will commence in fall 2014, and will be available to freshman and some students who wish to switch to a new major.
