The Bachelor of Journalism and Humanities (B.J.Hum. honours) degree is offered jointly by Carleton’s Great Books Program in the College of the Humanities and by the School of Journalism and Communication.

B.J.Hum. students spend half of their degree taking the same Journalism courses as Bachelor of Journalism (B.J.) students. They receive a professional training in writing and reporting, professional ethics and media law, and learn the skills appropriate to newspaper, radio, television, and new media journalism.

B.J.Hum. students spend the other half of their degree taking the same courses in the Great Books as Bachelor of Humanities (B.Hum.) students. This gives them an in-depth training in political science, literature, philosophy, history, classics, art history, music, and religion, so that they can bring to their journalistic career a great depth of analysis and breadth of context.
