“I’m so excited to be part of something that’s so large, on a national scale. It’s different than anything I’ve done before.”

Admissions and Advanced Standing
For most applicants, the Master of Journalism is a two-year program. The first year is an intensive introduction to reporting practice for which you’ll receive King’s Bachelor of Journalism degree. The second year is a deeper dive into multimedia journalism with a focus on long-form investigative reporting. You’re eligible to apply for the two-year program if you have an undergraduate degree in any discipline.
If you already have a strong foundation in journalism, you may enter the program in the second year and complete your Master of Journalism in 10 months. This accelerated path is open to students who have completed a Bachelor of Journalism degree or equivalent. It is also open to journalists with an undergraduate degree in a discipline other than journalism plus at least five years full-time experience in the field.
