Description:The School of Journalism features state-of-the-art facilities, including hands-on access to professional gear, AVID editing suites and fully equipped television and radio studios. Industry standard print production training integrates both established and current trends in online publication. School programs emphasize critical thinking, long-form documentary and investigative methods, professional and social responsibility and mastery of the full range of contemporary journalistic skills. We achieve these objectives through a balanced mix of classroom and studio instruction, followed by a full-term, paid newsroom internship. Small class sizes (max. 26 students) ensure one-on-one coaching and mentoring from experienced faculty. A nationally recognized pillar of the Regina program, internships at media outlets across Canada provide a well-rounded, work-ready education. Students build portfolios of their work through school publications such as The Crow, Ink and Ink Online, as well as the work they produce during internship placements. The School is committed to the liberal arts tradition, encourages campus-community engagement and is deeply rooted in journalism's democratic mission. The School has particular strengths in long-form, international, Indigenous and alternative journalism.
