Our Digital Media and Journalism program develops your researching, writing, reporting, digital storytelling and technical media production skills. It teaches you how to leverage the power of digital and social media platforms to tell compelling transmedia stories and deliver pointed communications. It also helps you make sense of the political, economic and cultural world in which media professionals work.
You can specialize in Journalism, Digital and Social Media, or Public Relations. In each concentration, you’ll develop technical media production skills in courses delivered by Conestoga College on our Brantford campus. After only four years, you’ll graduate with a graduate Contemporary Media Arts certificate from Conestoga in addition to your Honours Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Digital Media and Journalism from Laurier.
By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to create compelling content for digital and social media platforms, tell intelligent text-based and transmedia stories, as well as understand and analyze the wider social, political and economic forces shaping today’s media environments.
