Students in the Journalism school produce work for a variety of newspapers, magazines, Web sites and broadcasts. Within the program, you can see their work for:
The Ryersonian: Students in their final year of the program join this "masthead" program for six weeks each. They produce online daily news, multimedia, video and interactives, a weekly newspaper and several broadcasts per week. All students, especially those in the third-year, are encouraged to drop by the newsroom (RCC105) to pitch story ideas to editors. Students can also volunteer to take photos and galleries for The Ryersonian and will be provided with a camera.
The Ryerson Review of Journalism: an award-winning magazine written and edited by final-year students, that twice a year casts an unflinching look at the practice of journalism in Canada. The two annual print issues, plus an active Web space, comprise Canada's only review of journalism. Students apply for positions such as editor, copy chief, head of research and director of circulation. Under the direction of faculty - with additional advice from industry professionals - students build the Winter and Summer and online editions of the Review from the ground up, starting with extensive investigative research into the most topical issues in the field.
MediaLink: the school's online news portal, features audio, video, print, photo, and interactive material created by students. Students manage this in-house convergence project, as well as creating blogs and contributing original content.
RBN: the online broadcast channel featuring radio and television news and current affairs programming. All content is produced by Journalism students at Ryerson University. Watch a variety of student video and audio reporting materials as well as documentaries and special features online.
Major Project: the major projects of students in the Master of Journalism program.
Outside of curricular activities, many of our students also practise their craft on campus. This includes:
