3 Journalism students on the Faryon bridge filming an interview with an indigenous student using a large video cameraStorytelling is at the heart of Trent’s fully-integrated journalism program, which prepares graduates to be informed, inquisitive, critically aware, and technically-skilled journalists. In this program, you will earn both an Ontario college advanced diploma in Journalism (online, print and broadcast) from Loyalist College, and a joint-major honours degree (B.A. or B.Sc.) in Journalism and another discipline of your choice from Trent. The program is based at both institutions, giving students a unique combination of services and access to faculty support and leading edge research, as well as technical facilities. Your degree and diploma can be completed together in four (Arts) or five (Science) years of full-time study, including some summer study.
