B.A. English - Journalism | The American University of Iraq Sulaimani

B.A. English - Journalism

Students who choose the English Journalism major will acquire dexterity in traditional and emerging media. All good writers begin as good readers: student journalists will steep themselves in literature so that they may begin to intuitively understand the standards to which they aspire. Our program emphasizes individual field-work as a primary vehicle, allowing students to cultivate their own interests as they learn all the necessary skills. The English Journalism major balances theory with practice.
