Student Publications

They aren’t simply students working on class assignments, they are professionals producing journalism – top quality work we’re proud to publish throughout the term.

Community-based digital news stories, capital city multimedia projects, radio current affairs, long-form video pieces – they do it all, and they do it well.

Read. Interact. Listen. Watch.

Centretown News

Centretown News is an award-winning online and traditional community newspaper with a distribution of 16,000 in downtown Ottawa and surrounding communities. Published by the School of Journalism and Communication, it serves, beyond its journalistic function, as a teaching resource for third- and fourth-year students, as well as graduate students.

Capital News Online

Capital News Online is a digital publication that takes an in-depth look at subjects relevant to Canada’s federal government. The site is created almost entirely by students, who produce stories, maps, videos, infographics and data visualizations that help shed light on important topics.


Midweek is an eclectic weekly current affairs radio show produced by senior BJ and MJ students, broadcast live on CKCU-FM. Team members present interviews, documentaries, soundscapes and other innovative audio forms that use sounds and voices to take listeners into a story and the lives of those involved in it.

25th Hour

Who among us hasn’t wished for more time in a day? If you had one extra hour, what would you do with it? In our 25th Hour, a hands-on weekly workshop, we cultivate the power and beauty of longer-form visual storytelling in a student-produced video magazine that takes the time to tackle community stories that often get neglected.


From neurons to neutrinos, you’ll find fascinating science and medical health stories in Catalyst. This online publication of the fourth-year science journalism seminar showcases articles about scientific topics produced by the students throughout the winter semester. The focus is on relevant, new research, often with a local twist and multimedia appeal.
