Declare

Declaring the Major

To declare the journalism major, students need to complete Investigating Journalism JOUR-UA 50 or Journalistic Inquiry: The Written Word JOUR-UA 101 and earn a grade of C or better.

Once you are ready to declare, please submit an online Journalism Major/Minor Declaration Form. The Undergraduate Student Advisor, Andrea Brown, will use this information to declare you in Albert within one week and will contact you if there are questions about your plans. You’ll receive an email confirming when you’ve been declared.

You are also encouraged to schedule an appointment with Andrea through NYU Connect to discuss your academic plans, although this is not required.

College Guidelines for Declaring a Major

Students in the College of Arts & Science are expected to declare a major upon completing 64 credits, or by the end of their sophomore year. Students who have decided on a major before reaching 64 credits can also declare a major early.

Students in other schools and colleges should consult their college advisor for guidelines on when to declare a major.


Declaring a Minor

To declare a Minor in Print and Online Journalism or Broadcast and Multimedia journalism, students need to complete Journalistic Inquiry: The Written Word JOUR-UA 101 and earn a grade of C or better.

Once you are ready to declare, you can submit an online Journalism Major/Minor Declaration Form. The Undergraduate Student Advisor, Andrea Brown, will use this information to declare your minor in Albert and will contact you if there are questions about your plans. You’ll receive an email confirming when you’ve been declared.

You are also encouraged to schedule an appointment with Andrea through NYU Connect to discuss your academic plans, although this is not required.

Notes

  • Because the minors are not effective until Fall 2019, your minor will not be officially declared in Albert until after the start of the Fall 2019 semester. If you are planning to graduate before Fall 2019, you will not be able to pursue a journalism minor.
