Erin Hale

MJ 2014, Copy Editor, Phnom Penh Post
“The JMSC master’s program took my previous knowledge of journalism from my college paper and internships and turned it into a professional skill set. At the JMSC I learned how to improve my writing, pitch story ideas, and also to translate them to multimedia projects. I also learned a lot about Asia, from politics to media law, which helped me at my summer internship at the South China Morning Post, and later when I was applying for a full-time job at the Phnom Penh Post. It wasn’t until I moved to Cambodia though, where one of my classmates lives, that I realized that probably the most important lesson was meeting journalists from around the world, and understanding the challenges they faced.”

Lkhagva Erdene

MJ 2013, Executive Producer of News, Mongol TV
“As I come from a country with a partly free and chaotic media landscape, a year at JMSC proved to be a life changing experience for me, both in acquiring new skills and understanding the impact and necessity of unbiased reporting in a democratic society. Upon returning home I’ve joined Mongol TV, a commercial broadcaster, as head of news/executive producer. In my current role I am leading a team of 30 reporters, producers and anchors. The station and our newsroom are strong defenders of intellectual property: we have denounced copyright infringement, and we have also vowed to fight corruption through the strength of our airways. We have organized the inaugural television forum this February, and I am personally coordinating the effort to establish the first media council in the country.”

Sophie Brown

MJ 2013, Independent multimedia journalist in Hong Kong
“I joined the JMSC seeking to move into journalism from public relations. Two years on, I’ve had the opportunity to work with CNN International as a digital news producer, intern with TIME Magazine, and report for other news outlets in Asia. The MJ programme armed me with a wide range of technical skills that are essential for journalists in the digital age. What’s more, I learned from a faculty with extensive practical experience, formed bonds with students from all over the world, and gained the confidence to pursue my dream career.”

Joanne Lam

MJ 2013, Assistant Editor, SCMP STYLE Magazine
'I joined the JMSC fresh out of my undergraduate studies looking for insight and practical experience in the world of journalism. The course, professors and alumni network offered an invaluable opportunity for me to gain exactly that. Beyond garnering a stronger news sense and learning new technical skills such as online journalism and video producing, the JMSC also offers students a real foot in the door into the world of journalism.'
