Have superior writing skills plus a keen curiosity about news - consider a career in Journalism.

The two-year Journalism Ontario College Diploma program prepares you to report on all news delivery platforms, and helps you develop the online skills that have become vital in the industry.

Acquire leading-edge, relevant knowledge and skills in multi-platform and traditional journalism. Gain hands-on experience and expand your portfolio almost immediately upon starting the program, working for the award-winning Algonquin Times - named Canada`s top campus newspaper in 2015 and 2017 - as well as Glue, Ottawa`s student magazine.

Learn the core journalism skills to succeed in the industry. Study how to write factually, conduct interviews and filter information. Examine aspects of photo journalism, page layout, web and e-publishing, and online reporting/editing.

Your learning is expanded with workshops, guest speakers and field trips, offering exposure to a diversity of information and skills necessary for the modern journalist.

To ensure you are comfortable with all journalistic platforms, you create photo and video journalism and produce newscasts for CKDJ 107.9 FM, Algonquin College`s radio station.

Expand your real-world experience with a six-week internship at a media outlet and learn to operate as a freelance journalist. You have the choice to work at a local company or agency or complete the placement out of the region or country.

After graduation, if you wish to further your education, you can apply to the University of Ottawa`s Honours bachelor’s degree in digital journalism program.

There are many job opportunities in the industry after graduation. Graduates may find employment with:

  • community and daily newspaper organizations
  • radio stations
  • online-based news agencies
  • government and private sector communication departments
  • magazines
  • public relations departments

Opportunities may also exist for graduates wishing to freelance. Positions in desktop publishing, web design photography, and video may also be career options.

  • Have superior writing skills.
  • Possess a keen curiosity about news happening locally, nationally and globally.
  • Are willing and comfortable to interact with people.
