Outline

The study of journalism encompasses many of the most important areas for learning and discussion in the world right now: truth, fake news, freedom of speech, cancel culture, democratic structures, media literacy, and critical thinking.

In this specialisation, you’ll learn practical reporting skills such as research, interviewing, writing and presenting. You’ll be introduced to contemporary multimedia journalism and learn how to report for audio, video and online.

You can study this specialisation as part of our Bachelor of Communications.

What's a specialisation?

A specialisation is a set of four units you can choose to complement your course. Most Curtin courses allow you to choose a specialisation from any academic area. Humanities specialisations, like this one, can give a useful balance to a course from business, law, science, engineering or health disciplines.
