Mohawk suspends journalism program due to low enrolment, job market


Mohawk College will suspend its first-year journalism program in response to dropping enrolment and a bleak job market. The Spectator reports that the college will review the program and decide by next spring whether to revamp and resume the program. “We will work with industry partners in the field to realign the curriculum and program structure to provide students with the skillsets they need to succeed in this important and challenging field,” said Mohawk senior media relations and communications adviser Bill Steinburg. Upper year students will be able to complete their program and no faculty jobs will be affected.
