Faculty of Communication & Design

The School has strong industry connections and a career-ready approach to learning. Students work alongside faculty and staff who are often still working in the field. They also participate in day-to-day newsgathering and produce a weekly print and on-line news service, the Ryersonian, as well as a bi-annual magazine, the Ryerson Review of Journalism

With the ability to access internships and course partnerships in one of the biggest media markets in North America, the School has established unique publishing partnerships for students with organizations such as Huffpost Canada, Yahoo Canada, The Canadian Press and Torstar as well as J-Source, a Canadian source for journalism research housed at the School. The School’s Ryerson Journalism Research Centre also supports investigative and innovative research initiatives by both faculty and students. 

Ryerson’s School of Journalism prepares students for roles in print, broadcast and online media by teaching them to think critically and independently in order to tell stories that engage and serve the public.

The School also offers a Master of Journalism in conjunction with the Yeates School of Graduate Studies.

Graduates of the program gain a focused communications degree that is marketable across many industries and is an excellent preparation for a wide variety of graduate programs. Alumni from the School are a veritable who’s who of Canadian reporters, editors, authors, columnists and on-air personalities.  Among these are Robyn Doolitte (reporter, Globe and Mail), Kevin Tribbles (NBC Chicago correspondent), Zarqa Nawaz (author and creator of Little Mosque on the Prairie), Jim Sheppard (executive editor,, and Wendy Mesley (host and reporter, CBC).
