I would say it is beneficial if you are looking to get into the media industry whether it be in marketing/pr or the more digital side like radio.

It was a great overview of what it is like to work in the media industry but definitely doesn't get down into the nitty gritty of what its really like working in media and the kinds of skills you need to complete day to day tasks.

The only way you would get that experience is through an internship on top of this degree.

Positives: The practical aspects, writing a blog, and also being able to talk about interesting topics and subjects that I am interested in.

Negatives: 1st tutorial icebreakers

My advice to future students is: Put your everything into class discussions, ask as many questions, keep up to date with workloads. And start assignments weeks earlier to the due date.

Positives: I find the work I do it be enjoyable and I can see where I will be implementing it when i enter into the work force. There are few exams and all the content is constantly updated and relevant to the world and what is happening right now!

Negatives: As a journalism major, the core subjects for journalism cover all aspects. I HAVE to do video and audio subjects even though I am only interested in writing.

My advice to future students is: Make friends! The others in your degree are not your competition, class is more enjoyable when you all know each other.

Positives: The positive was the information provided, and the support provided by the lecturers and tute teachers. The course also was held at night so it is great for full time workers.

Negatives: I wouldn’t say there was negative aspects. I personally did not enjoy the subject or course.

My advice to future students is: Whatever course you choose, do it for yourself! Be prepared to study too.
