Notes

The Trent/Loyalist Journalism program allows students to build a foundation in critical and analytical thinking, ethical awareness, and journalistic practice, while pursuing discipline-based study in a field of choice.

This is a joint program with Loyalist College. Journalism is a direct entry program for secondary school students only. This is a joint major in Journalism and a science discipline of your choice. Students will complete years 1 and 2 and the first (fall) semester of year 3 at Trent University and from January of year 3 (winter semester) and all of year 4 at Loyalist College in Belleville.

There is a 6-week summer institute at Loyalist after years 2 and 3 and an 8-week internship at the end of year 4. Students will earn an Ontario college Advanced Diploma in Journalism and a joint major honours degree.

The B.Sc. degree in Journalism will take at least 5 years to complete.
