Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Chandler Berardi (BA '18)

"This program has some of the most knowledgeable, engaging and attentive professors. I fell in love with photography in Simon Wilson’s News Photography course, was inspired by audio in Steve Parr’s Introduction to Audio course and was completely engaged in Bruce Gillespie’s Digital and Social Media courses. 

"This program provides the opportunity to apply what you learn in class – on top of all the critical thinking skills you learn as well. This program teaches you how to tell stories in a compelling and truthful way, ask tough questions, think critically and properly use social media. You’re equipped with a backpack of skills employers are desperately seeking.

"This program prepares you for the new wave of the future. Journalism and media are changing and this program adapts too.

"My time at Laurier was the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life. I could not have chosen a better school and I’m proud to call myself a Laurier Golden Hawk... from the Brantford campus!"

Savannah Dale (BA '18)

"This program is perfect for anyone with a passion for storytelling and communications. It combines theory and the classic university experience with a hands-on twist.

"Professors encouraged me to think critically about issues regarding the media landscape and helped me acquire media analysis skills that I know I’ll carry throughout my career.

"This program is truly incomparable to any other journalism program in Ontario. It prepares you to enter the job market with a competitive edge over recent journalism or communications grads."

Talha Naeem (BA '19)

"This is an amazing program! For anyone who is passionate about media, journalism and/or advocacy, this program provides the perfect blend of academic knowledge and practical skills."
