Description

This program in journalism studies complements the journalism program, but can also be taken as a stand-alone sequence of study. It explores recent and contemporary scholarship about the institutional context and practice of journalism in Australia and internationally. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on media studies, political economy, history, philosophy and sociology among other disciplines. It develops advanced skills in media research, and fosters a critical while sympathetic interrogation of journalism practice. Graduates can expect to possess strong skills in scholarly research and analysis that will both enhance their professional skills in journalism, and lead to further study at a higher level.
