Wanted: Truth-seekers, change-makers and storytellers for the digital age
Information is the lifeblood of the modern world, the connector of communities.
Journalists add the context. They are masters of the written word — printed, posted or tweeted. They give voice to the most compelling stories of our time. They capture and create powerful images — videos, photos, graphic visualizations — that bring issues and ideas to life.
Whether your goal is to cover the news, shape public policy, promote worthy causes or generate buzz about the Next Big Thing, a Carleton journalism education is the perfect path to any career in truth-seeking, change-making or storytelling.
Canada’s first Journalism school is still doing what it has always done best – delivering Journalism Plus.
Hands-on professional training plus academic depth for undergraduate and graduate students, from the classroom to the workplace.
Undergraduate students can even earn a Combined Honours degree by pairing their Journalism major with another program.
