The School of Journalism and Communication provides two points of entry into the Master of Journalism program – Year One or Year Two. Most applicants will be admitted to Year One of the two-year M.Journalism program; however, some may qualify for admission to Year Two. A committee chaired by the Supervisor of Graduate Studies will determine the admissibility of each applicant. For admission to Year One of the M.Journalism program, applicants must hold an honour's bachelor's degree or the equivalent, with, normally, B+ or better in the honours subject and B- or higher overall. A limited number of spaces will be made available for direct admission to Year Two of the M. Journalism program. Students must normally possess one of the following qualifications to be considered for this admission option: a B.Journalism (Honours) or the equivalent; a degree in another discipline from a recognized university plus at least five years of professional experience in journalism; and substantial professional journalism experience of a high standard. Note: Students with prior journalistic experience or credentials who are admitted directly into Year Two will normally pursue the Journalism Studies completion option, or a path of coursework selected in consultation with the Supervisor of Graduate Studies, which will include a thesis or master's research project, as appropriate. Admission will be selective. Admission will not be guaranteed to all who meet the published minimum requirements, as there are many more qualified applicants each year than there are available spaces.
