Digital Media and Journalism


We're excited to have you join us in the launch of our revamped Digital Media and Journalism program. You'll find information about courses, instructors, and program resources. So please take some time to explore.

Connect with us on YouTube and Twitter.

The Digital Media and Journalism program prepares students with the critical thinking, knowledge and technical skills they need to work in the media today in journalism, public relations or any organization or business with a media profile. By the time they graduate, students will be able to:

create and navigate digital and social media platforms

tell intelligent and compelling text-based and visual stories

unearth and critically interpret information about contemporary issues

understand and analyze the wider social, political and economic forces shaping today's journalism and media environments

Students take a core set of courses, but also choose to specialize in Journalism, Digital and Social Media Studies, or Public Relations. They develop technical media production skills in courses delivered by Conestoga College on the Brantford campus, and graduate (after only four years) with a one-year post-graduate certificate from Conestoga as well as a Laurier honours Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media and Journalism.
