Biographical history

In 1949 Journalism and Publishing was offered during the 1949-1950 school year as a second year option by the School of Graphic Arts and in April, 1950 Ryerson Principal H.H. Kerr announced the introduction of a three-year diploma course in Journalism and Publicity. In 1950-51 two streams offered by the School of Graphic Arts- “Journalism and Publicity” and “Publishing and in 1951-52 three streams offered by School of Graphic Arts: “Practical Journalism,” “Printing and Publishing” and “Printing and Management.” In 1959-60 “Journalism” and “Print Management” split into two distinct academic programmes, although headed by the same director. In 1965-66 the Communications Department formed under Ted Schrader- grouped together Journalism, RTA, Photographic Arts and Graphic Arts Management and in 1970-71 the Communications Department was discontinued. That Department became the Division of Applied Arts. In April, 1972 Academic Standards Council approved degree status for Journalism, granting a Bachelor of Applied Arts and in Oct. 20, 1989 Academic Council approves adding a fourth year to the Journalism program. In 2000 the degree named changed from a Bachelor of Applied Arts to the Bachelor of Journalism.
