About this site
RSJ Wire features top student work from internships, courses and the School’s major brands, The Ryersonian and The Ryerson Review of Journalism. This page and its contents are curated by staff and faculty.
Students are introduced to journalism as practiced across all forms of media within the first two years, after which they may choose courses to concentrate in a specific medium (online, newspaper, magazine or broadcast) or gain expertise in a cross-media skill such as editing, or in a specific beat in journalism (including sports, business or international reporting).After taking courses building skills and evaluating theories associated with journalism, the culminating year brings theory and practice together.
Students may finish their program with an internship at a professional news organization in any medium. They’ll have the chance to produce material in The Ryersonian newsroom, which publishes all content online at theryersonian.ca. It produces daily news and multimedia, a newspaper, and broadcasts several times a week. Alternatively, students help to write and edit the The Ryerson Review of Journalism, a nationally distributed magazine including features and investigations about the Canadian journalism industry.
