PROGRAM OVERVIEW
St. Clair College’s new Media Convergence program provides students with the multi-skilled tools they require to compete in the ever challenging field of journalism and communications. Students will produce TV shows, radio newscasts, a number of newspaper editions, and online products such as podcasts and blogs. Students will learn to become converged media journalists – able to work in any newsroom and in any situation. Completion of a capstone convergence production is a requirement for graduation. Students will also produce short form radio and video documentaries.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

The newsrooms of today and into the future require journalists who are multi-skilled and able to deliver converged reporting across all media platforms – online, radio, TV and print. St. Clair College’s Media Convergence graduate year provides participants with those skills which consequently makes them highly marketable in all newsrooms. We also teach converged newsroom management skills – including learning how to determine when a story can be used across all media platforms – giving students another level of employment opportunities.

The backpack aspect of the program hones the convergence skills necessary to be a successful freelancer or e-lancer. Participants learn how to competently file stories to all media outlets, from anywhere in the world, working with a cell phone and/or laptop.
