Langara's journalism department has earned a reputation as one of the top schools in Canada for intensive, hands-on training that leads to rewarding careers in reporting, editing, producing and related fields. Students learn the core skills of journalism – how to dig for information, how to conduct a revealing interview, how to write a compelling news story. They also learn a wide array of contemporary skills that allow them to be successful in the rapidly changing multimedia journalism world, from using Twitter to engage with audiences to editing a television news story.

The Langara program is renowned for the high proportion of its graduates who work in professional news media. Our graduates get jobs at daily and community newspapers, radio and TV stations, online publications, and magazines, as well as in communications departments and public-relations firms. In the last two years, our students have found work even before graduating at the CBC in Vancouver, Global News and CKNW as well as Black Press newspapers. Projects some students began working on while at school were published in the Globe and Mail, the Tyee, the Province Newspaper and on CBC.
