The Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) program is designed as an 'end-on' fourth year from corresponding undergraduate degrees in Journalism. This Honours program qualifies students to apply skills and knowledge in their discipline and prepare them to undertake highly skilled professional work and/or advanced study. The degree will require students to plan and execute a research dissertation or a creative/professional product with minor dissertation/exegesis under the supervision of an appropriate academic supervisor as a pathway for further learning.
The Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) degree will consist of 80 credit points of assessed student work. This will include 40 credit points of coursework and 40 credit points of supervised research leading to the completion of a written dissertation, or to the completion of a creative or professional product with minor dissertation/exegesis. Students will be instructed in key research principles and methodologies in Journalism.
This program will be offered full-time and on-campus at Nathan and Gold Coast.
To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
