Watch our students' work.

For nearly 40 years, the Department of Journalism at Concordia University has trained journalists who reach hundreds of thousands of readers and listeners across the world each day.

Each year, an average of 250 students benefit from small class sizes and state-of-the-art facilities in the department. Our students have at their disposal all the story-telling tools they'll need to work in journalism and to be comfortable adapting to ever-new applications.

Our undergraduate programs in journalism – a major and two specializations – and our graduate diploma program prepare skilled journalists who think critically about the profession and society. We offer our students close to two dozen scholarship opportunities and we organize internships for students in good standing.

The MA program in Journalism Studies allows students and mid-career journalists to study journalism from a critical, scholarly research perspective, culminating in a master's thesis. Research in the department examines the role and function of journalism in a democratic society and the effect that the continuing transformation of journalism (e.g., on-line news, web logs, alternative media) has on the profession and society.

Our faculty are passionate about journalism, and we would be happy to discuss our programs with you. We invite you to read a message from the Chair.
