Macleay College has launched new bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Business that will give students industry-aligned, job-ready education within just two years. Classes for the new degrees started in February 2014 with a minimum entry ATAR of 65 for school leavers and face to face interviews for non-school leavers.
Macleay is already well known for delivering high-quality 12-month diplomas with great job outcomes, so why the new degrees? “Macleay can now provide an additional option for students looking to increase their education qualifications or elect for a more applied course, while still receiving the same industry-focused curriculum that Macleay is renowned for,” said Donna Mack, Dean of Macleay College.
“These degrees are a natural evolution of the Macleay offering which focuses on education that will fast track a student’s career in their chosen field. Our degree students will undergo rigorous course work and complete over 200 hours of relevant work experience as part of the degree to ensure they are job ready.”
Both bachelor degree programs offer a unique selection of specialist course-work. The journalism degree focuses on multimedia skills and provides education around investigative reporting, business journalism, sports journalism, music journalism, food and lifestyle writing and fashion writing.
The business degree includes dedicated units in entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership providing prospective students with cutting edge know how to add value to any organisation or start their own business venture.
“The content of our degree program is driven by what industry is calling for both now and in the near future. A big part of the Macleay philosophy and a strong point of difference to our competitors is our focus on making sure our graduates are equipped with vital and relevant skills for the current work environment.”
