journalism at macleay

Hi, I do journalism at Macleay. Its not hard academically, but it involves a lot of practical work. You have small assessments for every subject, and a major assessment for feature writing, tv, and radio which are due at the end of the year.
BTW, what school did you go to? I live in the St George, Sutherland shire as well.

My brothers friend did Journalism there for half a year, but had to drop out due to family reasons. He loved it, he said alot of the students want to be in TV journalism, but he was doing print journalism. He even got work experience with the Chaser newspaper

Pr

Hey Simpz. No I don't know anyone doing the PR course but we have one term of PR as part of our journalism course. I personally like it, our major assessment is a media campaign for a group or event, but then what we're doing is only a small part of the whole course. One of the girls doing journalism this year wants to do PR next year.

I reallly hated PR... eww. But then on my transcript I got distinction for it, oh the irony!

Anyway yes I did journalism last year... it's lots of fun... but at the time when you're doing it you probably won't think it's that fun.

But looking back on it... ahhh fun times *wipes tear* :D

I think it is overpriced, but I had a great time and I think I got a good education from it.

Hey!!

So do you also have to oo journalism as part of your course, the same way we had to do PR as part of our course?? Interesting!!

Hmm I just looked on Macleays website at the PR course - you have to do News Reporting?? YUCK! I hated that and was really bad at it...argh! Yeah I know what you mean about writing the intro... *rolls eyes* At the end of last year I still only got half marks for my press conference because apparently my intro didn't tell the whole story. :mad:

Your course looks kinda hard, eh!! Is it quite a lot of theory stuff???

Hey. I'm thinking about attending MC next year.
Does anyone know if you can attend any other Unis (other than SC Uni) with your grad. cert? I really want to go to UOW (I live close to it) or UTS (Best University Degree in NSW). I'm not interested in SC Uni to be honest... Hahaha.

I am also thinking of studying journalism at Macleay next year. Sounds like a really good course, does anyone know if they allow you to do a cadetship or internship while there, I think i may have just lined one up at a magazine....
Anyone else going to the open day on the 7th?
