Message from the Chair
The study of journalism is a calling for those that want to seek the truth, tell engaging stories and create meaningful change. For over 40 years, the Department of Journalism at Concordia University has trained respected journalists who reach hundreds of thousands of readers and listeners across the world each day. We pride ourselves as one of the best places in the country to learn to be a journalist. There is no greater need for your journalism than now.
As our former Chair, Brian Gabrial, wrote on this page: “If you promise to be critical, curious, and brave, willing to take a chance on stories you believe in, then we promise to give you the support and teaching necessary to make those stories happen.”
Today, more than 250 students work with the latest digital equipment and software. Our media labs, TV studio, and radio newsroom create a vibrant digital news environment where students hustle to create innovative journalism, while thinking critically about their profession and society. Our award-winning faculty continue to garner funded research grants to study the future of journalism, and MA students are conducting cutting-edge research on the news media.
Our students are well known for their intelligence and rigour. As graduates, they make us proud with their continual curiosity and courage. These nationally recognized journalists strive to fight injustice in world awash with misinformation.
I take great pride in walking the CJ halls with a new generation of journalists and scholars as we think, create and contribute together.
See you soon.
