PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Students looking for a career as a journalist will have the distinction of learning at our new MediaPlex located in downtown Windsor. Just steps from the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts, it is the only one of its kind in Canada and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to support “convergence” news reporting which means you will learn to write and file stories for all media platforms – television, radio, print, and on-line.

The curriculum will provide students with cutting edge knowledge and skills making them highly marketable across all media platforms.

Students will experience actual “on-deadline” news filing, be expected to adapt their story for multiple media deliveries and to back up their stories with photography, audio or video. Much of the course work is “in field,” and as such, students must be strong self-starters and motivated to seek out, interview and write stories on a frequent basis. Successful applicants will have a very strong interest in news and current affairs. They must have above average writing skills and the ability to meet deadlines while working under pressure. They should also have an innate sense of curiosity.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • 2 media field placements
  • “Convergence” journalism is taught exclusively at this campus, providing students with employable skills for the newsrooms of the 21st century.
  • Students will learn how to work across all media platforms including on-line, print, television and radio.

 

OSSD with the majority of courses at the College (C), University (U), University/College (M) or Open (O) level qualify for admission to this program.

Mature students – See Admission Procedures for details.

The opportunities for budding journalists are expanding significantly in traditional news reporting and photojournalism for print, radio and television. The web has opened new avenues for internet news provider/ researcher, web site designer and convergence media professionals (providing stories to all media).
