The graduate Journalism program provides you with the opportunity to work with award-winning journalists and academics with strong industry links, as they cultivate high-level skills in research and reporting across all media – print, online, radio and video – and explore the role of the media in contemporary society.
There is no more important job than journalism. It plays a crucial role by scrutinising and holding to account those in power and with influence; it exposes corruption and sheds light on systemic failings. Its essence is in finding the truth and telling the story, whether in politics, fashion, sport … The field of interest is as irrelevant to the quality of the journalism as the medium through which the story is told.
As a Monash Journalism graduate, you will inform and shape the future. The only question is: What is the world you would like to create?
International Relevance and Practical Experience
As a student in Monash’s Master of Journalism program, you will have the opportunity to engage with industry and participate in study tours and field schools both in Australia and overseas.
All students can apply for funding to attend international field schools via Monash Abroad.
