Overview

Our research draws upon the concepts, knowledge and methods of a number of disciplines, including communication studies, media studies, cultural studies, sociology, political economy, history, political science, philosophy and linguistics, profiting from both multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approaches.

The Department includes faculty members with expertise in English literature, communication studies, media studies and science.

Our research program seeks to:
  1. Support the need for scholarly understanding of journalism's role and function in a democratic society;
  2. Support the need for scholarly understanding of the implications of the continuing transformation of journalism (e.g., on-line news, web logs, alternative media) on journalism and for society;
  3. Provide students with the opportunity to study journalism from a theoretical perspective;
  4. Train scholars to conduct journalism-specific research and produce contemporary Canadian research;
  5. Complement the Department of Journalism’s highly successful vocational programs at the undergraduate and diploma levels.
