About this course

The Graduate Diploma in Journalism is for journalists who wish to deepen their knowledge and skills in the profession. The programme is also a good fit for anyone with an interest in journalistic writing.

The Graduate Diploma in Journalism enables you to study another subject without completing a second bachelor's degree. The graduate diploma is a bridging tool to gain the equivalent of an undergraduate major in a specific area so you can go on to postgraduate study.

The diploma will develop your understanding of both theoretical and applied issues in journalism and related areas. Topics covered include:

  • The history of journalism
  • Media law and ethics
  • Feature writing and freelancing
  • Investigative reporting
  • Editing and publishing
  • Public relations
