Study a degree that’s tailor-made for you.

A liberal arts degree gives you the freedom to focus on the subjects that most interest you. You’ll concentrate on a major area of study while maintaining a breadth of learning spanning the arts, humanities and social sciences.

The Journalism Major combines theory with practice to prepare you to successfully work in today’s multi-platform, globalised 24/7 media industry.

Hands-on experience in a newsroom environment will develop your reporting and production skills on multiple platforms. This broad approach will give you the opportunity to investigate real life issues and train you to tell stories with skill and passion.

You will be expected to keep up with current industry debates and also learn how journalism relates to other media activities such as public relations, marketing and advertising.

Elective modules will help you understand the breadth of this discipline and also give you a broad skillset.

Options to learn a language and study abroad at one of our international partners will help expand your learning and global outlook.

This Major will train you into a multi-skilled, multimedia professional, ready for a career in journalism and across the media and communication industries.
