the BALS fun facts are BACK! The fun fact for this Wednesday is….

Did you know that WWJ in Detroit was the first radio station to broadcast news reports on a regular basis?

How does this relate to BALS you may ask?
Well, let me tell you! Through the BALS program at Oakland University we offer a wide rage of classes that students can take. One of the more popular aspects that the BALS program offers is a Minor- Minor combination. This allows students to take classes in more than one area of interest, and earn a degree at the same time. One of those Minor options is Communication, Marketing, and/ or Advertising. Which students are able to take a Broadcasting class for radio or television.

Website Growth

Exciting news for the BALS Department, I am expanding the website today, if I can prevent the surfers from crashing the new Minor-Minor combinations will be up and listed by the end of the week! YAY! So exciting!
The new Minor-Minor combinations are related to Public Relations and Cinema Studies and Journalism….

-Dani Hine

Let the changes begin!


So it is official everyone, the boss lady has approved two new minor-minor combinations for the BALS Program here at Oakland University, and I must say they are some awesome combos….Where were these options when I was an undergrad?
The latest and greatest minor-minor combos involve Public Relations and Journalism, and Cinema Studies and Journalism….these new combinations allow students to explore fields of study that can lead them into new and different jobs…. the kinks are still being worked out on required classes, but they are coming along nicely. SO EXCITING!

Here at Oakland University we have many options for career paths, but in my personal opinion, there are some major opportunities being missed! Thats where our fabulous department comes in. Liberal Studies offers a variety of Minor-Minor Interdisciplinary Combinations for students looking peruse areas of studies that may not be offered in other areas at Oakland University.
I am thinking of a few career options that OU has missed that I would love to make apart of interdisciplinary sector….
If you have any ideas feel free to share! Ill keep you posted on whats to come!!
