One-Year Bachelor of Journalism

Learn It. Do It. Share It.

Cap your degree with a month-long internship at the journalism outlet of your choice.

Writing and editing, shooting and recording, timelines and graphics: learn storytelling techniques across media.

You are driven to tell stories. You are curious about the world around you. You want to share your passion and explore issues that matter.

Turn your interest into a journalism career.

This degree builds upon the broad undergraduate education you already have to give you the skills to become a working journalist in just one year. You’ll gain the practical, ethical and technical knowledge to thrive in the digital news environment. You’ll participate in hands-on workshops to tell stories in specific media such as radio, television, newspaper, magazine and mobile. No experience in journalism is required. 

Investigate a trend using a spreadsheet. Shoot high-quality video. Engage your audience.

Join the strong network of King’s grads working as journalists across Canada and around the globe. 

Take the one-year Bachelor of Journalism as a standalone program or as the first year of a two-year Master of Journalism with streams in Data Journalism or New Ventures.
