The Global Reporting Program

The GRP is a graduate-level course at the School of Journalism, Writing, Media at the University of British Columbia. In partnership with the GRC, the GRP provides students with the opportunity to participate in the production of a feature-length, in-depth work of global journalism. This course is available to second-year UBC Journalism graduate students and to students from our academic partner institutions.

The program is run like a newsroom โ€” with time in class focused on learning core concepts related to global journalism, and time outside of class structured around field work and production. Projects are pitched to prominent media organizations for publication. For more  information about the program, student eligibility, or partneships, please visit the GRP website
