Broadcasting and Digital Journalism

The Broadcasting and Digital Journalism major is producing passionate, sophisticated and informed reporters and content creators with a mission to inform, educate and entertain audiences. The work which has emerged out of this newly crafted major expertly blends both knowledge and practical skills for broadcasting and digital journalism, particularly broadcast and online.

In their work, students explore the rapidly changing world of the professional journalist, and learn how to navigate the complexities of media law and ethics.

Students work in state-of-the-art radio and TV studios, explore smart phone journalism, develop online content, record interviews and prepare news reports and packages for radio and television. In an age of fake news, there is a strong emphasis on factual and evidence-based journalism. The major also focuses on building knowledge, developing research and analytical skills and acquiring practical skills for an ever-changing media landscape. There is focus on student employability, and what employers want such as effective writers and speakers, team players and problem solvers. These abilities are transferable across a wide range of media and communication jobs.
