Regardless of the medium, it is more important than ever before for journalists to be equipped with the skills to take their own photos, shoot their own videos, and write compelling stories. Concordia’s integrated approach to multimedia journalism will teach you the skills you need to succeed.

Learn from professors who have made a name for themselves in print and video — some of whom still work full time for the local media.

Being able to explore different media options within a single program allowed me to develop areas of weakness I would have otherwise dismissed as well as strengthen already existing skills. I gained the necessary flexibility needed for a field that is increasingly expecting its journalists to understand and produce multimedia work. — Amber Morgan '15
