  • Conventional and Digital Media Outlets
  • Professional, Scientific and Technical Services
  • Publishing Industries

Possible occupations include:

  • Reporters
  • Writers
  • Editors

 This program is designed for those who want to have a career in journalism.  It is available to Popular Culture, Media and Communication, and Business Communication majors who maintain a 70% average in their courses. 

Students apply to the collaborative program at the end of their first successful year of study at Brock. A minimum 70% average is required to be considered for admission, but please note that reaching this minimum does not guarantee acceptance.
