Ryerson University’s School of Journalism is known for its highly experienced and award-winning faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and close connections with all of Canada’s major journalistic institutions.


Students in the two-year Master of Journalism program at the Ryerson University receive rigorous and intensive preparation for professional work in newspapers, broadcasting, magazines or digital journalism. 

They learn how to report stories to professional standards, while gaining a sophisticated understanding of journalism’s historic mission and its present-day possibilities, learning advanced research skills, embracing innovation, and focusing on the challenges of covering Canada’s largest, most diverse and most dynamic city. Ryerson’s location makes it the ideal place to lay the foundations for a career as a journalistic leader.


During their final year, students will work at one of the school’s two major publications: The Ryersonian, a digital, TV and newspaper platform or the Ryerson Review of Journalism, an award-winning magazine and online publication.
