The courses and programs in the King’s School of Journalism will prepare you to take part in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of journalism, as a news reporter, multimedia storyteller, or an investigative journalist.
You will learn by discussion, study, and by rolling up your sleeves and doing it. You learn to be a reporter by reporting. Most student work is distributed in print and on the air around Halifax, and online around the world.
King's emphasizes good teaching and close contact between students and teaching staff, all of whom are experienced professionals.
Our alumni produce popular science programs, edit sports and outdoors magazines, are entertainment reporters, publishers and producers, filmmakers and web specialists. Some take the skills they learn at journalism school in new directions, such as fiction, law, public relations, diplomacy, politics, and even medical school.
Graduates of the King's School of Journalism learn technology and technique, and, most importantly they learn how to think like journalists: to ask questions that get answered, to see the world in terms of stories, and to tell those stories clearly and well.
