Graduate Certificate of Future Journalism

Future proof your career

The Graduate Certificate of Future Journalism is designed for early or mid-career journalists, and graduates of a journalism or communications degree.

The news environment is changing  - almost daily. Journalists now need to produce news in a dizzying array of new forms and on new platforms.

This course harnesses new methodologies, and applies them to the production of long-form, short-form and investigative journalism.

The course has two core subjects - Transmedia Journalism (the newest trend in multimedia, cross-platform journalism) and Ethics and Law of New Media. It also includes six electives from which students choose two.

Electives:

  • Social Media Journalism
  • MOJO (Mobile Journalism)
  • Data Journalism
  • Drone Journalism
  • Coding
  • Transmedia Project

The first two subjects running in February 2019 will be Transmedia Journalism and Ethics and Law of Future Journalism.

Ethics and Law of Future Journalism will be taught by Lynelle Scott-Aitken on Tuesday evenings from 6pm – 9pm.

Transmedia Journalism will be taught by Denby Weller on Thursday evenings from 6pm – 9pm.
