Today’s rapidly changing news media environment means we need journalists who know how to find, write and produce news using multimedia technologies, and who have a solid grounding in broad communication theory. Through the Journalism major in the Bachelor of Communication Studies (BCS), you learn to write, illustrate and edit stories for professional news organisations, often beating the professionals to breaking stories for publications.

You gain experience in news reporting, different writing and production specialisations, bicultural reporting, cross-cultural reporting, news photography, media law and ethics. You learn on the job in our full-time newsroom, and will be encouraged to extend your skills with live reporting exercises. The core papers cover news gathering, news and feature writing, and court and local government reporting.
