La Trobe University’s Bachelor of Media and Communication allows you to specialise in Journalism, Media Industries, Sport Journalism or Public Relations.
You’ll practice writing and producing compelling stories for different audiences across formats such as video, audio, and online platforms including blogs and mobile applications. You’ll also develop skills in using social media, and learn how audiences are both challenging and changing today’s media landscape. We offer a third-year internship that gives you hands-on experience relevant to your major in the media industry.
Your lecturers include industry professionals from a range of media backgrounds. Depending on your major, you’ll work in our on-campus strategic communications agency, contribute to our own publication, upstart, and have access to the latest AV production equipment, a three-camera TV studio and 24-hour digital editing suites, and a full audio recording studio.
You can complement your media and communications subjects with a range of electives including politics, languages, media production, history and English, or by choosing electives from across the University in areas such as economics, commerce, science, information technology and health. You’ll also develop an understanding of the media’s social, political and economic roles, and the role you will play as a media and communications specialist.
