Master of International Relations / Master of Journalism

Monash University

This is a double degree course leading to two master's degrees; the Master of International Relations and the Master of Journalism. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the nature of the international political system and some key issues in contemporary international relations, an entry-level qualification for a professional journalism career, and a mid-career course for working journalists seeking to extend their expertise and refresh the intellectual basis of their practice. The course offers a range of topics in international relations such as global security, economics and human rights with four specialisations: Governance and security; International diplomacy and trade; Political violence and counter-terrorism; or Advanced international relations. Journalism studies focuses on finding the truth and telling the story and plays a crucial role in scrutinising and holding to account those in power and influence. Subject to conditions, students have the opportunity to study abroad, and to develop research interests in a number of areas, providing them with a potential pathway into a higher degree by research. Our graduates have gone on to a broad range of occupations and have been employed by the likes of the United Nations, the Australian Government, and non-governmental organisations such as the International Red Cross, news media, or have become young entrepreneurs establishing their own firms both in Australia and internationally.
