Master of International Journalism

The University of Western Australia Faculty Of Arts

Master of International Journalism

The primary aim of the Master of International Journalism is to produce the best student journalists across all media formats - print, broadcast and digital. This masters course will give students the ability to generate original journalism to a high industry standard, while at the same encouraging them to think critically about journalism in a global context.

Course description, features and facilities

Prominent political journalist and Foundation Professor of Journalism, Peter van Onselen, working with other academics and acclaimed industry professionals will introduce students to leading journalists and scholars, providing a combination of theory and practical experience. Students will learn, through the practice of news and feature story production, the ability to research across disciplines as well as to question received knowledge and to construct coherent, logical analysis of the contemporary social world.

Today's media world is multi-platform and students work with print, television and online publication formats. Students will study in an environment that simulates industry, produce work for a real audience and on successful completion of the degree will have a portfolio of published pieces that will aid in their transition to professional practice.

Career opportunities

The course is designed for graduate students wishing to pursue a career in journalism. It will also greatly enhance the career prospects of those already working in the field. In addition it is an excellent grounding for those in professions related to but not directly involved in journalism, including media advisors, and communications and media strategy in government and business. The focus on the international and domestic contexts means that graduates will be equipped to work in the global environment.
