Communicate local, national, and global stories through traditional and emerging media platforms.

Journalists tell important and impactful stories with a diverse skill set: writing, taking photographs, composing audio and video, developing interactive websites and much more. As a journalist, you will use powerful storytelling techniques to give a voice to local and global issues.

Using UQ's state-of-the-art production facilities, you'll extend your theoretical knowledge by gaining sought-after skills in field recording and camera work, sound editing, vision and pictures, data analysis, publishing and entrepreneurialism, and multi-platform distribution.

You'll also gain valuable insights into current production values and practices from the on-site Media and Production Support team, and industry professionals drawn from leading media outlets.

Despite the highly competitive nature of journalism, UQ graduates have high success rates in securing jobs across the media – in metropolitan and national newspapers, commercial and public radio and television, news agencies and magazines in Australia and around the world, with many now in senior positions.
