Digital Media and Journalism

The Digital Media and Journalism (DMJ) program prepares you for a career as a media professional, equipped with the critical thinking, knowledge, and technical skills needed to work in journalism, public relations, or with any organization or business with a media profile. By the time you graduate, you will be able to:

  • Design and develop content for digital and social media platforms.
  • Tell intelligent and compelling multimedia stories.
  • Unearth and critically interpret information about contemporary issues.
  • Understand and analyze the wider social, political, and economic forces shaping today’s journalism and media environments.

Starting in Fall 2021, students will earn a second credential in addition to their Honours BA in Digital Media and Journalism as part of the program. The new Certificate in Digital Media Production will highlight the hands-on training students will receive and the skills they will develop via workshop-based classes in digital imaging and photography, audio storytelling, videography, as well as graphic and web design.
