Bachelor of Arts - Politics and Journalism

The University of Notre Dame Australia

The Bachelor of Arts (Politics & Journalism) is a specialist Arts degree that combines critical aspects of the political and media domains. This program in Politics & Journalism combines studies in communications and media with a rigorous grounding in areas such as politics and international relations, history, legal studies, Aboriginal studies and economics; providing significant depth to the degree. In addition to being skilled in the practice of journalism or reporting, media practitioners need to grasp the concerns and problems uppermost in the minds of their viewers or readers - this program is designed to equip graduates with these skills. Similarly, those graduates who wish to focus on the politics component of their degree will learn to understand the workings of modern media and the way in which public attitudes and social and political policy can be influenced through media representation.
