Career paths

St. Clair College’s Media Convergence graduate year provides participants with those skills which consequently makes them highly marketable in all newsrooms. We also teach converged newsroom management skills – including learning how to determine when a story can be used across all media platforms – giving students another level of employment opportunities.

The backpack aspect of the program hones the convergence skills necessary to be a successful freelancer or e-lancer. Participants learn how to competently file stories to all media outlets, from anywhere in the world, working with a cell phone and/or laptop.
