Journalism studies prepares students for a range of professional writing careers. Emphasis is given to quality content and analysis, situating journalism within a political and global framework. Students gain the basic technical and software skills that enable them to be new media practitioners in a rapidly evolving industry. Graduates are ready for positions in online and real world environments and the preparation of broadcast quality materials.

Journalism students work in a range of media producing material for print, radio broadcast and online distribution. They have the opportunity to gain hands-on industry experience working as staff writers, interviewers and bloggers at major events, such as the Byron Bay Writers' Festival. Additionally, SCU media students produce rich-media stories using our in-house publishing hub Mediadrive, meaning students get hands-on experience working in an industry-standard online publishing environment.
