Students looking for a career as a journalist will have the distinction of learning at our new MediaPlex located in downtown Windsor with the Journalism program of St. Clair College.


Just steps from the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts, it is the only one of its kind in Canada and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to support “convergence” news reporting which means you will learn to write and file stories for all media platforms - television, radio, print, and online.

The curriculum of the Journalism program of St. Clair College will provide students with cutting-edge knowledge and skills making them highly marketable across all media platforms.

Students will experience actual “on-deadline” news filing, be expected to adapt their story for multiple media deliveries and to back up their stories with photography, audio or video. Much of the course work is “in field,” and as such, students must be strong self-starters and motivated to seek out, interview and write stories on a frequent basis. Successful applicants will have a very strong interest in news and current affairs. They must have above average writing skills and the ability to meet deadlines while working under pressure. They should also have an innate sense of curiosity.
