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.

“The Trent/Loyalist Journalism program prepared me for the Gzowski internship and for the workforce by getting me more confident in things like approaching people, making cold calls, talking to people about different topics, knowing how to research things, and just being overall more confident in the way that I approach different tasks.”
