Master of Journalism
No profession is changing faster than journalism. This is a journalism degree for the future, designed by Australia’s leading thinkers and practitioners in news media futures, to fit students with the skills they will need to be part of redefining the profession. Students will learn the ever important skills of journalistic research and clear communication, as well as multimedia skills, new media entrepreneurship and cutting edge elements of practice such as Data Journalism and the use of social media to assemble and engage with audiences.
The program is designed for students who are dedicated to pursuing careers in journalism and journalism-related fields, and for journalists and other professional practitioners working in the contemporary media industry who wish to update their skills, develop additional advanced skills and expand their education.

A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
