Sheridan College

Program Description:

Sheridan College offers both an undergraduate program and graduate studies in journalism.

Sheridan’s 2-year undergraduate Journalism diploma program trains journalists to work in an ever-changing global media landscape. They’re tech-savvy storytellers who find and report the news using sounds, images and words, seamlessly weaving these elements together for a variety of platforms: websites, social media, newspapers, magazines, radio and television. Our newly renovated newsroom provides the best setting for a hands-on learning environment. This undergraduate program is for those students entering college from high school.

A field placement/internship at the end of the second year of study provides further hands-on learning opportunities.

Journalism-New Media-Graduate Studies is a 1-year program for graduates of university and college programs from diverse academic backgrounds, industry professionals seeking retraining, and/or those with substantial life experience seeking practical, hands-on training. Sheridan’s Journalism-New Media program takes an integrated approach to learning by combining practical and technical training – fusing traditional journalism education with trailblazing technology courses.  Student journalists work on a variety of platforms:  websites, social media, newspapers, magazines, a tablet, radio and television in our newly renovated open concept newsroom.

A field placement/internship opportunity is offered at the end of the second semester.
