There's still time to sign up for the First Year Student Seminar, (Journ 197) which is open to, and useful for, first year, sophomore and transfer students, or anyone who is new to the journalism major. The course is a one-credit, five session workshop that meets one and a half hours a week and introduces you to all sorts of resources that will be helpful to you as a journalism major. Sign up!
Sophomores, juniors and seniors can all benefit from the Journalism Launchpad seminar, (Journ 497G), which prepares you to apply for jobs and internships, helps you think about career choices, and get ready to launch yourself into the real world. Several students who took this course last year said that it "changed their lives." Sign up on SPIRE.
