Journalism

Please note: This is an LUC minor, not a Leiden University minor programme.

The minor in journalism trains students for opportunities in mass media fields that demand strong writing and speaking skills alongside a clear appreciation of the ethics involved in reporting. In addition to practical skills and fieldwork in print and broadcast journalism, students taking this minor will also engage with the unique perspective of studying journalism as a literary experience–international journalism on war, conflict, and totalitarianism not only resonates with the interdisciplinary themes of peace, justice, and sustainability, but, by doing so, also prepares students to understand and grasp the power of words.
