Cinema Journalism (Double Major)

The double major is grounded in core journalistic traditions and values of truth, fairness and accuracy, coupled with a strong digital-first ethos and the aesthetic and stylistic rigour of filmmaking. This double major encourages an entrepreneurial spirit and an awareness of narrative markets and audiences, and will offer many opportunities to develop a portfolio of work to showcase your professional brand, interests, skills and aspirations.
