The future of Journalism is here

We train the 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.
