Diploma in Journalism

2 years

This two-year diploma introduces students to journalism and media criticism and to the contemporary social and cultural context within which journalists work. The programme combines writing intensive courses in Communications and English with courses in Philosophy and Psychology, Political Science, Economics, and African History.

While students may proceed directly to potential entry-level careers in journalism, especially in small markets and independent digital environments, completion of this programme is intended primarily to provide students with the liberal arts education necessary to further study in journalism.


Studying journalism opens doors to a range of careers where your creativity, writing, communication and research skills are invaluable.
