WHAT IS IT LIKE?
The Graduate Diploma in Journalism Studies 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 diploma will develop your understanding of both theoretical and applied issues in journalism and related areas. Topics covered include:
Becoming a journalist
If you are not yet a journalist and wish to become one, you should strongly consider including journalism studies courses in whatever degree you are studying. You should then consider the Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism or Master of Journalism, (the qualification you need to become a journalist).
You can do journalism studies courses as part of a communication, arts, business, or other degree. If you are studying at a university other than Massey, it is likely you can arrange to have journalism studies courses cross-credited to your degree.
Massey Business School is ranked in the top 2% of business schools globally.
