WORLDREP Europe and Australia in the World - Reporting Political, Environmental and Social Change
Undergraduate EU-ICI-ECP dual degree programme in journalism
Journalism remains a central source of information about our world. Individuals, communities, industries and governments continue to rely on news media to provide knowledge of issues and to interpret change. The capacity to understand and contextualise our world demands reporters with international knowledge and outlook, who can respond to local and global events and conditions.
This program addresses this demand. It will foster graduates with the capacity to communicate events, issues and risks during a period of rapid change, and who understand diverse political, environmental and social contexts. Bringing together leading journalism and media programs in Australia and Europe, the project will be the first of its kind, providing 40 undergraduate journalism students access to intensive one-year study programs that complement and build upon their home institution study.
They will earn internationally recognised double degrees, which will serve as a model for future degree programs. Partnering with significant media organisations, the program includes field trips to sites of change, such as the European Parliament and Australian landscapes, and combines theoretical learning with a practical approach to analysis and industry-ready skill building.
