How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Journalism Broadcasting course?

Accurate

While gossip and hearsay may dominate headlines, a journalist has to be, first and foremost, accurate. You’ll need to fact-check and be certain that a story has sources that are credible before publishing it.

Confident

Whether it’s talking in front of a camera that’s broadcasting to over 20 states, or just writing a piece that your editor will have to edit, you’ll need to have confidence, both in yourself and the work your produce.

Versatile

Sometimes you’ll be confined to a laptop or cubicle for hours on end to edit and re-edit certain articles to ensure perfection before it goes into mass production. Sometimes you’ll need to travel to a foreign land, in the rain and muck, and talk to people you’ve never met before. Either way, you’ll need to be comfortable doing it all.
