The postgraduate coursework program in Journalism, Media and Communications provides students with core media skills - practical and analytical - and the opportunity to specialise within the field of journalism, media and communications. The program offers a selection of 'base' units, each of which is designed to allow students - in consultation with teaching staff - to focus on a specific area within the broader field, such as environmental and science communications, sports media, print, broadcast and convergent journalism, or public relations. As students progress through the program, they develop both the skills required by industry and to work independently, and a specialised knowledge.

Admission & Prerequisites

Direct entry to the Masters program will be granted to students with a Bachelor degree with a distinction average and a level of English equivalent to a score of 7 on an IELTS test (with no individual band less than 6.5).

Students with a Bachelor degree without a distinction average will be admitted to the Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate.

Students seeking entry into postgraduate courses based on employment experience only (i.e. no bachelor degree) can be admitted to the Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate.

Progression from the Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate to Masters requires results of Credit average.

International students who do not meet the requirements for direct entry at the Masters level can obtain direct entry at Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate level and package this with an offer for entry to Masters subject to achieving a credit average at Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate level. International students seeking admission at the Graduate Diploma level must still demonstrate a level of English equivalent to a score of 7 on an IELTS test (with no individual band less than 6.5).

Course Objectives

To produce graduates with the core skills to enter the industry and to work independently, and, where appropriate, a specialised knowledge within the broader field of journalism, media and communications.

Career Outcomes

Work in journalism, media and communications industries, including in print or broadcast news, online journalism, public relations, environmental and science communications, sports media, corporate or government communications.
