Break the news with Journalism
In a changing media landscape, journalism today offers a broader range of opportunities than ever before from broadcast news reporting to independent online commentary; from freelance documentaries to sophisticated data analysis and interpretation; from live mobile reporting in the field to reflective long-form story-telling. Today’s journalists need to be skilled communicators who can work across platforms to get their story out.
They need to be curious and open-minded, with skills to carry out research and interviews, and then report with crystal-clear writing and presentation. They also need to understand the role society expects of them and the laws and professional conduct demanded of media professionals.
Journalism at Murdoch gives students a professional grounding in reporting and writing, all-platform digital media production, video journalism, and media law and ethics. Students can choose minors, or even a second major, in radio, photography, web communication, public relations, creative writing, or screen production.
