University of PEI / Holland College

In Charlottetown, the University of PEI, in cooperation with Holland College, offer a four-year Bachelor Applied Arts in Print Journalism. Students acquire technical training and practical experience in Journalism (primarily during study at Holland College) and also receive a series of academic and lecture-based courses to prepare them to work as journalists. The program differs from a Bachelor of Journalism program, which normally has a more theoretical orientation in exploring the nature of the media. Students normally undertake one year of study at the University, then complete the two-year Journalism program at Holland College (earning a Holland College diploma), before undertaking a final year of study at the University. The final year of study normally includes an opportunity for journalistic writing either at the University or arranged through Holland College.
