At King’s, you aren’t a ‘student journalist’—you’re simply a journalist. You’re part of a working team, breaking news, streaming interviews and publishing multimedia features. In our renowned Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) program, you gain experience telling engaging, fact-based stories. You learn to ask ethical and probing questions, research deeply and write with flair and precision. You become a clearer thinker who can discern fact from opinion, ambiguity or falsehood.

You tell stories with words, audio, and video, reaching audiences on multiple platforms. You also gain experience and build your professional network through a journalism internship. And once you’ve finished your honours journalism degree, you have the skills you need to work for journalism outlets, businesses, environmental groups, government departments, NGOs or political parties. Are you curious? Do you like to express yourself? Do you want to make the world a better place? Then the Bachelor of Journalism Honours degree is made for you.
