This program prepares students to enter the English-language journalism field with online, print or broadcast media. The program looks at news locally and abroad from an international perspective, and internships and student-run media give students the opportunity to put skills into practice.

Integration of Experience

We believe the best learning happens both in and out of the classroom. We regularly organise professional speakers and hands-on workshops, local and international media visits and international reporting trips. All of our students do internships in top media organisations and many go on overseas exchange.
