The Stanislaus State Journalism minor provides both an academic experience and professional preparation. The program emphasizes writing, editing, ethics, and professionalism across multiple platforms including websites, social media, and magazines. Journalism minors constitute the core of students who write for the Signal, Stan State’s monthly student news magazine and daily news website (csusignal.com). Journalism minors also have the opportunity to participate in the production of our internationally known literary magazine, Penumbra. A minor in Journalism helps prepare students for careers in writing, editing, public affairs and other media-related jobs.
