The program is designed to provide students with experience of journalism industry practice, while at the same time providing opportunity for a wider liberal-arts education. The program combines communication and media studies with thorough instruction in journalistic skills, and specialisation in an area of non-journalism-specific knowledge designed to enhance graduates' employment prospects.

Graduates find employment with metropolitan or provincial newspapers, radio or television, or general or specialist magazines, or in the publishing arms of large corporations, or in new media. Large organisations, public or private, employ graduates in information and press office positions or as media liaison officers.
