Parts of this curriculum take effect in Fall 2013. Students who took JRN 110 before Fall 2013 will continue in that sequence.

*Students are required to pass 111 to progress in JRN skills courses.
**These courses follow a sequence (e.g. JRN 370 and JRN 371). See Bulletin course descriptions for specifics.
