MJ Program Information
The path you’ll follow in our program depends on the experience you bring to your studies. So will the course options you choose. Check the Graduate Calendar for details about which path applies to you.
What You’ll Get At Carleton (Two-year program)
Be prepared for an intense experience. You’ll begin by learning the core skills of modern journalism in a newsroom setting.
That’s not all. You’ll also have courses in professional issues and media studies.
They’ll enable you to operate in the complex legal and ethical environment of modern journalism and to think critically about the role you’ll play as a member of the media.
What You’ll Do At Carleton (Advanced Standing)
If you are an experienced journalist, or already have a journalistic education as an undergraduate, you can get a course of study tailored just for you.
Technically, it means directly entering the second year of our two-year program.
More practically, we’ll create an environment for you to reflect on the profession, enhance your understanding of journalism and the media industry, learn new skills (including digital journalism) or re-focus your career goals.
