FYI to students and faculty: the ENGL journalism courses–Intro. to Journalism and News Writing–were moved into the COMM department at Friday’s Curriculum Committee meeting.

The hope in the move is that MC’s degree-seeking COMM students will now have more choices in their upper-level writing courses and that the courses will have a natural audience of potential students.

Congratulations to all who helped make this possible. Changes will appear in time for the Fall 2016 semester.
