On May 6, 2013, the first group of students enrolled in the new Trent-Loyalist Journalism program began their summer semester at Loyalist College. They will spend the next two months building their skills in an Integrated Newsroom, with audio, video, print, traditional broadcast, and online professionals working side by side. The students have just completed their first year of the program at Trent University.
Through this unique partnership, students can study for their Trent baccalaureate degrees in various areas of interest, while also earning an advanced diploma in Journalism – Online, Print and Broadcast from Loyalist. Students in the program have enrolled in either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree at Trent, and each of their first two years of study will include two months of intensive journalism work at Loyalist.
“At the end of two years, students will have year-one of our program and two years toward their baccalaureate,” explains Jane Harrison, Dean of the School of Media Arts and Design at Loyalist. “The third year, they spend with us in what would be the second year of our Journalism program, which gives transfer credits back to their baccalaureate.”
