    The Journalism minor at Ohio Dominican University seeks to equip students with the knowledge, skills and values needed for effective reporting of truth. Journalists are charged with reporting and writing the truth in an ethical, unbiased manner. To this end, journalists' jobs tend to be consistent with Ohio Dominican University's mission statement that encourages both students and faculty "to contemplate truth and to share with others the fruits of this contemplation." The minor is both professionally oriented and grounded in the liberal arts tradition of Ohio Dominican University. Students are charged with developing and honing their critical thinking and communication skills; specifically responsible reporting and writing. The minor integrates lectures, practical experiences and new technological advances so students can transition smoothly into the professional world and the arena of responsible reporting.
