Secure your future with a Diploma in Journalism
Do you have a nose for news? Are you constantly engaging with people, trying to understand human nature and stories and what motivates others to do the things they do? If you have ink flowing through your veins and have always thought that the pen is mightier than the sword, you might be well on your path toward pursuing a career in journalism.
Our programme prepares you for the industry, with learning areas such as newsroom techniques, ethics and legal aspects. Once you are in the field, expect to interface with a number of different people during interviews, newsgathering, and compiling stories. Through journalism, you could also find yourself in a number of alternative media spaces, working with aspects of copywriting, online journalism, social media management, and radio or television broadcast. With the journalism industry being as diverse as it is today, there are plenty of exciting and dynamic opportunities for those who want to take a dip into the media pool.
Put your name under the spotlight, write your own ‘by-line’, see it roll up in the credits at the end of a TV show or news bulletin, you can with a Diploma in Journalism from ICESA.
