Bachelor of Journalism / Bachelor of Arts

University of Queensland, The (UQ)

Journalism is an exciting occupation that allows students to meet many different kinds of people and to travel. The basis of journalism is information - discovering, collecting, assembling, analysing and presenting information. To do this effectively, journalists require highly developed skills in language, a good understanding of the media, an interest in current affairs and a broad general knowledge. By also studying the Bachelor of Arts (BA), students graduate with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding. The BA allows students to choose from a wide variety of majors to either complement their journalism studies (such as economics, international relations, public policy or popular music) or to broaden their knowledge in another field (such as a language, criminology or psychology), thus expanding their opportunities to work in different areas of journalism.
