Comments about Bachelor of Journalism (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.
