UMD to offer new degrees in Journalism, engineering

Monday, February 22, 2016

Two new degree paths will be available to students at the University of Minnesota Duluth next fall.

A bachelor's degree program in journalism and a master's degree program in mechanical engineering were approved by the University of Minnesota Board of Regents earlier this month.

Both already had roots at UMD, with a journalism track through a writing studies major and a bachelor's program for mechanical engineering.

"We were losing students who were looking for journalism programs and didn't see a straightforward path," said Sue Maher, dean of the College of Liberal Arts at UMD, who came to the university in 2010. "Not have a journalism program just seemed strange to me."
