Still have a question?

You can email or book an appointment. Depending on what you’re wondering about, your Journalism Undergraduate Administrator will either help you directly, or refer you to your Undergraduate Supervisor.

Normal response time for email is 2-3 business days, and longer during peak times of the year such as registration.

By Appointment

You can set up a consultation to do the following:

  • review all components of your journalism major
