The Monash Journalism Program is one of the most dynamic in Australia. One of the key strengths of Monash Journalism is its foundational teaching of both the practice of journalism addressing all production technologies (print, broadcasting and podcasting, photojournalism and digital) and the study of journalism. Our program is designed for you to understand the history, power and context of journalism alongside units, which offer practical experience using multifaceted platforms and technologies. In doing so, it prepares you for the professional practice of high-quality journalism. This blending of critical enquiry and industry engagement provides you with an opportunity to explore journalism in all its facets, and to address the vital issues of the media today.
The program is taught by award-winning journalists and renowned journalism academics, in a multi-million dollar purpose built facility at the Caulfield campus. Monash Journalism is designed to facilitate entry to an exciting and challenging profession providing internship opportunities. It imparts research and communication for professional practice and is founded on the principle that robust and accurate journalism is an essential component of a democratic society. If you are from any of the other disciplines and areas of study you may take our journalism units to learn critical skills in communication in a variety of approaches and media platforms, which will improve your employability.
