MLitt Digital Journalism

Course Description

Traditional news outlets are moving towards online products at an accelerated pace. Innovations like hyperlocal news and mobile media reporting are becoming more prevalent and digital technology is profoundly changing journalism. This course is designed to equip students with the necessary skills to produce multimedia news and features and to enable them to develop sound analytical, ethical and entrepreneurial skills in order to function at a high level in the digital media world. We aim to produce high quality, fresh-thinking graduates who have a passion to communicate and can articulate their ideas through effective story-telling.

Students work in the University’s simulated news environment and also report externally using mobile media. They pursue real-life stories, produce their own journalism packages and experiment with entrepreneurial projects. They undertake reporting, writing and editing using text, pictures, video and audio to effectively tell multimedia stories. They are also trained in essential journalistic practices such as team-working and meeting deadlines. In Semester 2, students devise, launch, produce and market their own online publication. In the Entrepreneurial Journalism class, which is run in collaboration with the prestigious Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, students learn about developing a portfolio career, personal branding and creating new ventures. Throughout the course students also have the opportunity to work on various projects with organisations from journalism and the creative industries. On successful completion of the Diploma, students may progress to the MLitt in which they prepare a dissertation on an approved topic in journalism studies or a multimedia package and critique.
