Why to study
School of Journalism programs at the University of Regina 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.
The professional Master's option in Journalism at the University of Regina is a 30 credit program to be completed over three semesters. It is not an academic track degree; rather it is designed to develop students' capacity for advanced journalistic investigation.
Candidates will take a suite of core courses in the theory, history and methods of journalism as well as two advanced specialization options (in print, magazine, broadcast, documentary, international media, alternative media or photojournalism).
An outside elective will draw on the resources of other departments and programs and will be related to students' professional capstone projects. In lieu of a thesis, their professional Master’s project will be completed under the supervision of an assigned faculty member. Long-form journalism proposals may include a film or radio documentary.
