Master of International Journalism
The Master of International Journalism (MIJ) is targeted at students interested in understanding and producing journalism in an international field of practice, where it is important that key skills are complemented by an understanding of different professional traditions, conventions, cultures and challenges. It particularly seeks to cater for aspiring journalists or mid-career professionals concerned to develop an international career, by providing an in-depth focus on different traditions, media systems and industry environments.
The Master of International Journalism combines an emphasis on key skills - newsgathering and newswriting, video, audio, digital and social media production – with an international outlook on how different media operate in different cultures and markets. It also focuses on particular areas where a transnational perspective and knowledge is important, such as business and finance journalism. The degree supports understanding of the different expectations, pressures and opportunities of journalism in different industry, regulatory and cultural environments, and how globalisation and digitisation are contributing to change within and across these settings. It prepares graduates to be confident and knowledgeable practitioners in a diverse and rapidly changing international field of practice, while equipping them with the skills to successfully operate in the fast-changing environment of digital journalism.

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.
