My name is Dan Kruk and I'm the publisher and editor of soccermadeincanada.com--Canada's only website dedicated to the Canadian men's and women's national teams.

At this point we're still in the process of creating content with an expected 'go live' date of March 15th, ten days before the CANMNT's crucial WCQ match against Mexico here in Vancouver.

To be clear, the interest in both the CANMNT and CANWNT is at levels not seen in Canada since the men last qualified for the World Cup in 1986. As a forty-eight year-old man, I've watched a lot of poor Canadian soccer and to be honest, we're still not at a level that could be deemed respectable elsewhere in the soccer world. However, with MLS and NASL clubs in Canadian cities, interest in the sport--and by extension, in the national programs--has skyrocketed.

Learn Travel Journalism This Summer in Italy & Croatia

Friday, 12 February 2016 11:37

Deadline to Apply Feb 15

Perched on a hilltop in the un-touristed Marche region of central Italy, Urbino is both an ancient birthplace of the Renaissance and the contemporary home for a lively university. It is the perfect place to find and tell stories about colorful characters, artistic treasures, rich history, world-class wine and cuisine, and off-the-beaten-path destinations. Students preferring to work in video and other formats may participate in our parallel Urbino course in Multimedia Journalism. The finished work of both multimedia and magazine programs is published on our Urbino Project website. The Urbino program runs from May 27 June 24.

The seaside city of Split, Croatia, where students will study travel journalism. Our Croatia Travel Journalism Program follows immediately, from June 25 to July 9. Croatia was once one of Europe's best-kept secrets but thanks in part to Emmy award-winning travel journalist Ashley Colburn, who will teach in this program, the secret is out. Spectacular coastlines, beaches, marinas, walled cities, and more than a thousand coastal islands are emerging as travel hot spots.

This study abroad course may not be transferable to MRU. If you are interested in doing this course, contact your program chair to discuss it.

Creating A Podcast At CJSW

Tuesday, 12 January 2016 15:14

Hey Journalism students. My name is Kai Sinclair, the News Director at CJSW 90.9 FM - the campus/community radio station located at the University of Calgary.

One of my jobs is creating and producing the many podcasts that air on CJSW. We have programs on architecture/design, energy, comedy and much more.

Some of our shows have been featured on the front-page of the iTunes podcast page - something that no other campus station has done! Recently, our program "Theoretically Speaking" was the #2 podcast in the country. We've also recently launched a brand new website athttp://cjsw.com/ where you can listen back to every single show. 

I'm interested in students who'd like to add to their degree experience by creating great radio and developing new podcasts. They would get full training courtesy of us, learn broadcasting skills, build their resume, and also reach a global audience. This would be a volunteer opportunity, but a really fun one. CJSW is an important cultural institution in Calgary that not many students take full advantage of.

If you're interested, email me at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . I'm happy to provide tours of the station and discuss the project in more detail.
