About

The Journalism BJ program at Carleton University is offered through the School of Journalism and Communication, one of Carleton’s flagship departments, and the oldest, largest and best-known Journalism School in the country.

Overview

Journalists are the eyes, ears and voices for their communities and the country.

From war zones to capital cities, from courtrooms to boardrooms, and in hospitals, police stations, sports arenas and church basements, journalists rush to places where events occur. They ask questions, report what they see and hear, and offer analysis of the changes and issues that shape our society.

As key players in the workings of every democracy, journalists should be well educated, thoughtful, analytical, conscious of the responsibility that comes with their job, and equipped with a moral compass to guide their decisions.

For more than 70 years, graduates of the Journalism BJ program at Carleton University, benefiting from a demanding and intense curriculum that combines professional course work with traditional academic studies, have filled the ranks of the media and related occupations in Canada and around the world.

Future opportunities 

Carleton Journalism graduates have distinguished themselves in virtually every aspect of journalism and in a wide range of related fields including public relations, marketing, communications and government service.
