Journalism (BJourn)

Where You Belong

“When I started in Journalism at Toronto Metropolitan University, we established the fundamentals of what we needed. In my second year it really started to broaden up, we learned about the different mediums. You’re exposed to a lot, and you get to pick what you like, which is really cool. I feel I can do so much with my Journalism degree.”

Is It for You?

The need for storytellers who can sift through the noise and produce insightful and engaging stories has never been greater. Study Journalism in the heart of Toronto, and learn transferable and marketable skills in reporting, writing, research, critical thinking, interviewing, and media production from instructors with industry experience. You’ll learn to put current events in context, understand key issues and trends, dispel rumours and misinformation and help paint an accurate picture of the world through text, audio, visual and social media. You’ll also develop practical reporting experience from our leading-edge studios, editing suites, digital-first newsrooms and internships.
