The Signal is the portal for online student work at the University of King’s College School of Journalism in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

We focus on producing compelling stories for the people who live, work and play in the Halifax area.

The content is produced from September to April by students in our Bachelor of Journalism and Master of Journalism programs, and those above first year in our four-year Bachelor of Journalism Honours program.

It is reported and edited by students as part of the JOUR 4857/5857 Digital Reporting Workshop course.

We launched The Signal in September 2015.

We welcome all comments.


The Signal was the COPA awardGold Award winner in the Best Academic Project category at the 2016 Canadian Online Publishing Awards
