Dual Major with the Newhouse School of Public Communications

New communications professionals understand the need to be savvy in emerging technologies, and many aspiring professionals enroll in the dual-degree program in Information Management & Technology and one of the majors offered through the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, a nationally recognized educator of journalists, advertising agents, and other communications professionals.

Students interested in deepening their understanding of communications and information technology can select one of the following Newhouse majors, in addition to completing the information management and technology major at the School of Information Studies.

  • Advertising
  • Broadcast & Digital Journalism
  • Graphic Design
  • Magazine
  • Newspaper & Online Journalism
  • Photography
  • Public Relations
  • Television, Radio & Film

Students dually enrolled in the School of Information Studies and a Newhouse School program must fulfill the major requirements of both schools. Upon graduating, they receive a bachelor's degree (one diploma) conferred jointly by the two schools.

Students may apply directly to the dual programs as incoming first-year students or may add the dual as a current student, after completion of the dual-degree admission requirements.
