What will I learn?

By combining a Bachelor of Journalism with a Bachelor of Commerce, you will be able to present information and develop compelling, business-based news stories to a range of different audiences. You will be able to analyse and interpret economic theories and critical commercial information, and engage your audience with well-crafted stories. Through practice-based subjects and your own research, you will also attain a broader understanding of the world through a commercial lens. Graduates can work within large or small corporate organisations, for a specialist publication or a generalist media organisation.

The Bachelor of Journalism provides in-depth hands-on training in journalism, converging media (radio, TV, web, phone, tablet), digital communication and multimedia storytelling. It has a strong professional focus, with an emphasis on practical learning with studio-based studies in multimedia content production. You will learn to research, produce and present entertaining and timely stories through video, audio, print and digital technologies including podcasting and webcasting, working both independently and collaboratively.

Today’s business environment is dynamic and complex. The Bachelor of Commerce degree provides core skills in many business functions as well as specialist knowledge in a chosen field. Throughout this degree, you will have the opportunity to gain practical, real-world experience and make professional connections, including the opportunity to participate in the Business Internship program.

What you will study

You can choose one major from the Bachelor of Commerce: Accountancy, Business Law, Economics, Finance, Financial Planning, Human Resource Management, International Business, Management, Marketing, Public Relations or Supply Chain Management.

The Bachelor of Journalism has a prescribed set of core subjects, as well as the opportunity to use electives to complete a major or two minors from a multi-disciplinary list.

Why choose this course

Combining a Bachelor of Journalism with Commerce degree at UOW means that you'll get a balance of practical and theoretical subjects. Be inspired by our purpose-built media labs, fellow students studying other disciplines, our campus and the way we do business. As part of your degree, you will apply what you learn as you go, using converging media, writing real stories with real deadlines.
