Comments about Master of Arts in Journalism Studies - At the institution - Montreal - Québec

  • Objectives
    The new M.A. in Journalism Studies is aimed at students interested in acquiring the theoretical foundation and methodological skills necessary to conduct scholarly research in the field of journalism studies. It is a research-oriented program, designed with two kinds of students in mind: those interested in the scholarly study of journalism as a practice and as an institution and wish to acquire the necessary research skills to produce scholarly work, perhaps with the intention of continuing on to doctoral study; and mid-career journalists who are interested in familiarizing themselves with the scholarly literature in this field and in pursuing a specific research project.
  • Entry requirements
    This program is not intended for students interested in becoming journalists. Students interested in becoming journalists in the print, radio, television and/or on-line media should consult the program description of our Graduate Diploma in Journalism.
