The Master of Journalism (MJ) programme attracts talented students from all over the world, and is taught by a faculty of experienced journalists and media scholars who have had decades of experience in responsible positions in the global news industry. Many courses are taught by adjuncts who are practising journalists in international news organisations such as The New York Times, CNN and The Wall Street Journal.
The Master of Journalism course is a one year full-time or two year part-time course. Students learn the core skills of journalism—reporting and writing, television and video production, and digital journalism. They also take elective courses in a range of subjects from business and finance to public health and documentary film.
Graduating students have been hired by the world’s leading media organisations including Bloomberg, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The close links that the JMSC enjoys with leading international and local news organisations has helped graduating students find employment in these organisations.
