What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Journalism is driven by a digital-first ethos and grounded in core journalistic traditions and values of truth, fairness and accuracy. This approach empowers students to harness and exploit established and emerging technologies to create career opportunities and new pathways. Students learn to conceptualise and create original and compelling content across platforms and are encouraged to use digital storytelling to engage with social issues and advocate for change. Throughout their degree, students build a substantial portfolio of practical work aligned with industry standards, in the process defining themselves as specialised professionals via a choice of real-world majors and minors. Students have access to world-class facilities and opportunities to report for local, national and international media outlets. We offer journalism and digital media internships in Australia and abroad, including New York, Washington, Beijing and London.
