Comments about Bachelor of Journalism (Combine Honours) in Journalism - At the institution - Ottawa - Ontario

  • Objectives
    At Carleton, we believe that the best preparation for embarking on a career in the news media is a solid, broad-based education. With this in mind, you will choose 12.0 of the 20.0 credits that are required for your Bachelor of Journalism degree from courses offered outside of the required Journalism curriculum. Of these 12.0 credits, 4.0 of them will focus on one particular discipline – such as English, business, history, political science or law – giving you a strong grounding in another academic field. You can choose this second field of study from a wide array of programs offered at Carleton.

    Canadian Studies, Economics, English, French, History, Mass Communication, Political Science, Law, Philosophy, Sociology and Women's and Gender Studies. Details of the specific requirements for those programs may be obtained from the Department concerned. Special arrangements may be made for other combinations in consultation with the Supervisor of Undergraduate Studies (Journalism). The Journalism requirements for the Combined Honours program are normally the same as those for the Bachelor of Journalism with Honours. The requirements of the other discipline are the same as those listed for the Combined Honours program in that discipline. Students are advised to consult the Combined Honours entry of their second discipline in this calendar for details.
