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.

We launched The Signal in September 2015. 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. We do not accept external submissions.

Most of the news stories are produced by senior undergraduate students in The Signal news reporting workshops, which typically run from November to March.

We welcome all comments.


We are proud partners with Parse.ly and a member of its university publications program.
