The Journalism program offered by Dalhousie University guides students through the process of transforming an idea into a polished manuscript. The degree is a combination of short intense on-campus sessions with ongoing one on one mentoring by professional non-fiction writers, and professors. This two year limited residency program consists of lectures, seminars, panels, and workshops designed to deepen the understanding of the art and craft of writing creative non-fiction.
The professional degree focuses on methods of journalism research, and multimedia and multiplatform story forms. It delves deeply into investigative reporting practices with an emphasis on data analysis techniques. Core courses built around the craft of digital journalism further prepare students to produce a professional project by the end of the year.
