Collection Policy for JOURNALISM AND COMMUNICATION

General Purpose

Iowa State’s Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication is the largest and most comprehensive journalism and communication program in Iowa. Undergraduate Students enrolled in the Greenlee School can choose one of two major tracks. Advertising majors study copywriting, design, media planning, strategic communication and multimedia productions, just to name a few. Journalism and Mass Communication majors take courses in reporting and writing, design editing, public relations, photojournalism, science communication, multimedia production, and magazine publishing, and more. The graduate programs focus on either communication theory and research or communication as a professional field.Graduate Students can specialize in a variety of fields including science and political communication, advertising, public relations, journalistic writing, and magazine publishing.

The Iowa State University Library collection supports the teaching and research needs of the students and faculty in the program. Since this is a practical as well as a research discipline, a balance must be struck between the theoretical and the applied aspects of the program.
