UNews is produced by senior students at the University of King’s College School of Journalism in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. We publish it in six-week blocks in the fall and winter terms of the academic year as part of the course JOUR 4857/5857 Online Workshop. We launched UNews in October 2008.
Halifax has seven post-secondary institutions. Our goal is to cover all of them and to do it more extensively than other news outlets in the region. We aim to offer more coverage and depth, and more timely reporting, while at the same time making full use the online medium.
The workshop supervisor is Tim Currie.
The assignment editor is Stephen Puddicombe.
The photo instructor is Michael Creagen.
We welcome all comments.
