Journalism (Double Masters with University of Warwick) - A6015

Journalism (Double Masters with University of Warwick)

Master degree

Offering a truly international perspective, this double degree course combines a Master of Journalism at Monash (in Melbourne, Australia) with a Master of Arts taught in the Department of Politics and International Studies at Warwick University (in Coventry, England).  You will be prepared for careers in international journalism or international relations combined with communications. This in-the-field integration of global politics and journalism through study in Europe and Australia has been designed by leading practitioners across both fields. It develops the skills needed to meet the current and future challenges faced by journalism and international relations practitioners globally.

The Master of Journalism component of this double degree course provides you with the opportunity to work with award-winning journalists and academics with strong industry links. You will cultivate high-level skills in research and reporting across all media – print, online, radio and video – and explore the role of themedia in contemporary society.

You can couple the Master of Journalism at Monash with any one of the nine MAs taught through Politics and International Studies at Warwick: International Relations, International Security, International Political Economy, Public Policy, International Politics and East Asia, International Politics and Europe, International Development, United States Foreign Policy or Political and Legal Theory.

The program can be completed in two and a half years studying full-time, and will conclude with a joint dissertation (to be taken at either Monash or Warwick) with a supervisor from Monash and Warwick. You will graduate with a Master of Journalism from Monash and a Master of Arts from Warwick.
