The journalist of the future will play a crucial role in society by scrutinising and holding to account those in power, shedding light on systemic failings, and finding the truth. If you want to enter this exciting and rapidly changing industry, or you're a media practitioner seeking to extend your expertise or refresh the intellectual basis of your practice, the Master of Journalism is a perfect choice.

You will work with award-winning journalists and academics with outstanding industry links, achieve expert skills in research and reporting in print, digital, radio and video, and explore the media's evolving role in society.

Focussed on career outcomes, the journalism program has the strong backing of the university, with nearly $3 million dedicated to new facilities and state-of-the-art equipment in 2015.

Led by award-winning media practitioners and academic staff, students build practical and applied skills in all media forms. Embedded relationships with the media industry flow from the senior editorial backgrounds of key staff. The Master of Journalism offers internship opportunities in a wide range of media outlets, from mainstream newspapers to niche websites specialising in areas such as politics, arts or fashion.

You will build your understanding of a globally evolving industry through international collaborative engagement with research institutes and centres for investigative journalism in the USA, including the Center for Investigative Reporting in San Francisco and the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, DC.

Monash journalism graduates are smart, skilled and ready. Media employers seek them out –and graduates have found work with The Age, ABC Radio, and national, community and regional newspapers across Australia. Their skills are also in demand in other industries, including public relations, communication, editing, publishing, digital and video/audio production.

Course Structure

The course is structured in three parts. Part A. Foundations for advanced journalism studies, Part B. Core Master's study and Part C. Advanced expertise. All students complete Part B. Depending upon prior qualifications, you may receive credit for Part A or Part C or a combination of the two.

[Note that if you are eligible for credit for prior studies you may elect not to receive the credit.]

PART A. Foundations for advanced journalism studies
These studies will introduce you to journalism studies at advanced undergraduate or graduate level. They are intended for students whose previous qualification is not in a cognate field.

PART B. Core Master's study
These studies draw on best practices within the broad realm of journalism studies. Through a combination of academic and practice-based work, students gain a solid foundation in all production technologies – print, video, radio and online – in metropolitan, regional and international contexts.

PART C. Advanced expertise
The focus of these studies is professional or scholarly work that can contribute to a portfolio of professional development. You have two options.

The first option is a program of coursework study where you select the units to suit your own interests. This option includes the opportunity to undertake an internship in the field.

The second option is a 24 point research thesis. Students wishing to use this Masters course as a pathway to a higher degree by research should take this second option.

Students admitted to the course, who have a recognised honours degree in a cognate discipline including humanities or social sciences, will receive credit for Part C, however, should they wish to complete a 24 point research project as part of the course they should consult with the course coordinator.

Partner with another course

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take up to two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.
