Student Media Archive
The University of King’s College School of Journalism offers a four-year Bachelor of Journalism (honours) degree; a one-year post-baccalaureate Bachelor of Journalism; a one-year specialized Master of Journalism and a Minor in Journalism Studies.
Students begin publishing in their second year, and continue to do so through the graduate program. Their work reaches a broad public audience through the following media outlets:
The Commoner: graduating honours students and one-year students produce this weekly newspaper with a circulation of 2,000 copies distributed throughout downtown Halifax
UNews: a website covering the five universities in Halifax
KJR: a website for Atlantic Canadian journalists published by graduating honours students
Peninsula News: a publication by second-year honours students
Students also have the opportunity to produce in-depth radio and television documentaries, develop new magazines, produce their own individual websites and write narrative non-fiction stories of up to 4,000 words.
Master of Journalism students each produce an in-depth multimedia website that focuses on a news or current affairs beat in Halifax. The two sites below show the range of topics explored by our graduate students.
Many students also produce work for local and national media outlets while they are in class, or during their four-week internship.
