UJ Journalism Honours

UJ Journalism Honours

UJ Journalism Honours, ​​​The Journalism and Audiovisual Communication Degrees are housed within this department. There is a great deal of synergy between these two qualifications and though they will continue to function as distinct degrees, students will be given the opportunity at honours level to work on joint projects which cover both disciplines.

Since their inception, both degrees have striven to combine theoretical and vocational training in their course offerings and this will continue in the new department and grow even further.
