The King’s bachelor of journalism program is built on our philosophy that a professional journalist has a superior academic education and excellent practical skills.
The Foundation Year Programme is your base and the upper-level courses as an expansion are an extension of that base. The reading you do, the discussions you engage in, and the critical thinking skills you hone are all valuable assets as you delve into complicated issues and pose thoughtful, meaningful questions.
The practical components of journalism are addressed through creative and factual writing, editing, interviewing techniques, and all facets of print, online and broadcast production, which allow our graduates to become immediately productive, working journalists. Students work collaboratively in deadline-driven environments, producing newspapers and magazines, online publications, and radio and television programming. Take a look at some of our student work. The BJH internship program gives students valuable on-the-job experience and the opportunity to build professional contacts.
Please note: Some journalism courses have prerequisites with a minimum grade. Combined honours degrees also have specific requirements. Please consult the King's academic calendar for details.
A distinct advantage of the King's program is the opportunity to pursue a Combined Honours degree. Students can choose their second subject from either the faculty of Arts and Social Sciences or Science, as well as one of the college's three interdisciplinary programmes: Contemporary Studies, Early Modern Studies, and History of Science and Technology. The blend of journalism studies and an enhanced grounding in another subject opens the door to a particular field of journalism, such as political or financial commentary or scientific reporting.
Please contact the School of Journalism for combined honours curriculum details.
Admission requirements are determined by geography, type of student, or interest. Please refer to our admissions guide for the admission requirements relevant to you.
