The economics and communication departments at Loyola of Maryland have created an interdisciplinary minor for business journalism.

Abby Hill of The Greyhound writes, “As a part of the communication department, Professor Rob Terry teaches the business journalism course here at Loyola. Prof. Terry has worked at the Baltimore Business Journal, Washington Business Journal, and a business and technology magazine in Montgomery County, Md. He’s worked in business journalism for just over 20 years. He teaches his students a general sense of the business world and the components involved in it, as well as how the economy and markets are influenced. Professor Terry hopes the students take this knowledge and apply it to whatever they want to do.

“‘I think just the general knowledge of any of those things, as I’ve said to the students all semester, can come in handy whether you’re crafting a piece of business journalism on deadline, or if you’re writing a press release, or if you’re working on a website project for a big company, and they need you to tell their story in a digital way online that engages with readers, all that stuff is applicable,’ Prof. Terry said.

“An interdisciplinary minor in business journalism will be something that people in both communication and economics majors can sign up for starting in the fall of 2024.”
