The University of Wollongong - Bachelor of Journal
Universities: Posted 30-7-07 Deadline - No Deadline
The University of Wollongong now has a fully equipped newsroom to provide hands-on skills for students in the new Bachelor of Journalism program: Forty students are enrolled in the new course, run by the School of Journalism and Creative Writing. UOW has been teaching journalism since 1990 when it opened a Graduate School of Journalism offering a Master of Journalism degree. This was followed by a Bachelor of Communications and Media Studies, where students were able to study a small number of journalism subjects. However, with the introduction of the Bachelor of Journalism degree, the suite of subjects has been broadened and refocused to give the students more hands-on skills. The newsroom is integral to the course, and each year the undergraduate students will spend at least one full day a week working there. Depending on their year, they will be writing stories, sub-editing or involved in layout and design.
