    St. Thomas University Instructor
    Don Dickson says

    Canada has a lively and free press, including a government-assisted TV and radio broadcaster as well as numerous commercial radio stations, TV networks, and newspapers.

    Studying journalism is Canada is beneficial to international students because they can compare the free pursuit of journalism to the practices in their country. Many news organizations operate in Canada and because of our proximity to the United States, students are also exposed to lively, commercially supported journalism in that country.

    A degree in journalism would benefit international students because good, fair journalism is essential to a democracy and it's important to do it well. All the journalism instructors at St. Thomas have worked as professional journalists in newspapers, radio, or TV.

    I spent 40 years working as a TV journalist in the USA, UK, Mideast, Far East, and Canada. We all pass along not only our experience but our love for and commitment to journalism.

    Good students find careers in journalism. More than a dozen of my former students now work at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, for example, and others work with the commercial networks.

    Many others have applied their journalistic skills to communications work with the government and with private organizations.
