Journalism

Learn about journalism

You may have heard that the role of a journalist is to uphold the fourth estate. But what does that mean? It means that you’re the one who finds the real story before the rest of us realise the story is even there. You’re the one who informs us about the problems and achievements of our society; between our community and the world. There’s no more important job.

Why study journalism?

Journalism will teach you the skills to write succinctly, to a word limit and to a deadline. It’ll teach you to question ideas, and to question people face-to-face. You’ll learn to think on your feet and quickly gain an understanding of an issue. It’ll also teach you to be accurate, check your sources, dig deeper and analyse data to find the next big story in the field that most interests you. You’ll learn to use the very latest technologies in our fully-equipped Monash Media Lab, one of the most advanced of its kind in Australia.
