The postgraduate coursework program in Journalism, Media and Communications provides students with core media skills - practical and analytical - and the opportunity to specialise within the field of journalism, media and communications. The program offers a selection of 'base' units, each of which is designed to allow students - in consultation with teaching staff - to focus on a specific area within the broader field, such as environmental and science communications, sports media, print, broadcast and convergent journalism, or public relations. As students progress through the program, they develop both the skills required by industry and to work independently, and a specialised knowledge.
