Regardless of your medium, it is more important than ever before that journalists are equipped with the skills to take their own photos, shoot their own video and write a compelling story. 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
