URegina pauses admissions for school of journalism to review, update curriculum

CBC reports that the University of Regina’s school of journalism will be suspending admissions to its programs for a year so that it can review and update its curriculum. Current journalism students will not be affected and will be able to continue their studies, and URegina indicated it will work with part-time students and other URegina students looking to pursue journalism school to ensure their progress is not delayed. The pause will affect applicants to the bachelor of arts in journalism, the bachelor of journalism, and the master of journalism programs. Changes include five strategic goals involving increased enrolment, improved curriculum expansion into communications, implementation of a core Indigenous curriculum, and stabilization of staffing.
