About Us

The SAIT Photojournalism Major begins in the second year of the Journalism diploma program after the students have completed two full semesters of journalism courses in several media disciplines. This first year allows our students to study a broader cross section of the media industry, which will help them determine a potential career path. Before the second year begins, the students must declare their intention to pursue the Photojournalism Major.

Acceptance into the photo major program is based on grades, and usually a portfolio submission at the end of the second semester. Photojournalism today is a multidisciplinary career. As such, they require skills not only in photography, but also writing, editing, interviewing, audio/video gathering and editing, and much more.
