About the Program

The Journalism program allows students to develop multimedia skills that are used in digital news reporting and storytelling across all media platforms. The first year of the Journalism program emphasizes the fundamentals of news writing, research, interviewing, legal and ethical standards, digital news design and the journalistic use of social media. Students also take courses in photojournalism, as well as audio and video technologies that are vital to telling stories in an online news environment.

In second year, the program transitions from theory and practice assignments to real-time news coverage and digital storytelling. Students report for a live news website, the campus radio station (CJIQ-FM), a weekly TV news program and the student newspaper, Spoke. In addition to first-hand experience with the challenges and deadlines of real-world production cycles, students receive in-depth training in story development, live reporting, feature reporting, expression of personal opinions, entrepreneurship (including freelancing) and long-form reporting approaches, such as documentary production and magazine writing.
