Learn It. Do It. Share It.

You’re curious about the world around you, eager to explore issues that matter and driven to tell stories. You already have an undergraduate degree. Now you want a journalism career.

King’s one-year Bachelor of Journalism builds upon your broad undergraduate education to give you the professional skills to become a working journalist in a collaborative environment. You’ll gain practical, ethical and technical knowledge to thrive in the digital media environment. You’ll participate in hands-on workshops to tell stories in text, images, audio and video. No experience in journalism is required.

Join the strong network of King’s grads working as journalists across Canada and around the globe like Angel Moore, Shauntay Grant, Adam Scotti, Michael Dick and Wanda Taylor. Take the one-year Bachelor of Journalism as a standalone program or as the first year of a two-year Master of Journalism.

“This school challenges me every day to think outside the box. It’s crazy how my life has changed in the past couple of months. I’m happy to be here.”

— Salam Shuhait, current student, Bachelor of Journalism

Boot Camp

Begin with an eight-week introduction to finding information, asking questions and applying ethical principles. Then gain the practical skills to create stories across platforms that resonate with the public.


You’ll do a month-long internship at an approved media outlet. Your placement can involve reporting, editing or research. It will give you an opportunity to explore career options and broaden your experiences. Students before you have interned at locations big and small from Iqaluit to Toronto to London, England.

Those pursuing the two-year Master of Journalism end the one-year bachelor portion in April and begin the masters component in June.
