Teaching program and courses
What is it like studying journalism at Monash?
At Monash Journalism, students are taught by award-winning journalists and renowned academics in a multi-million-dollar, purpose-built facility at Caulfield campus.
In our Journalism practice stream, students learn how to write great stories for a range of news media. You will acquire foundational skills in reporting and producing the news for print, digital and broadcast media platforms, using cutting-edge technologies and powerful multimedia tools. You will learn a new way of writing – for print and social media, radio and podcasting, television and documentary, and you will gain core skills in news photography. And you will have unrivalled opportunities to intern with, and learn from, some of Australia’s leading newsrooms and industry players.
Our program combines journalism practice with critical enquiry. You will also gain a suite of skills in scholarly research, media literacy and professional communication. This is the focus of our Journalism Studies stream, where students are empowered to think critically about the powerful role and function of journalism in the digital age.
We aim to ensure our graduates are equipped to grapple with ongoing change in media and cultural industries, supported by a fundamental understanding of the social, cultural and historical factors that shape journalism now and tomorrow.
