The Honours Journalism BA program and minor, and JN courses are only available at the Brantford Campus.

The Honours BA Journalism program at Laurier Brantford is designed for students who seek employment as journalists in mass media, or who wish to pursue journalism as general education, and for those who wish to use studies in journalism as a preparation for other careers (in public relations, writing, web management, etc.) and/or education. Journalism at Laurier, which is also combined with contemporary studies, will emphasize its natural ties to a liberal arts education.
