Law, Media & Journalism
The Master of Law, Media & Journalism is a new specialist degree that equips students with the ability to interact with new media developments in a practical way and understand the legal consequences of those interactions. It develops a depth of knowledge through strong theoretical and practical understanding of the different regulatory and legal issues that arise in the context of print, radio, television and online media sector, media relations and corporate communications. Offered in partnership with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, this program is for those with a background in media or law, or for those who would like to deepen their knowledge of this growing area.
Students are required to complete two compulsory courses (12 uoc) in the first year of study, then choose half of their elective courses from the Media & Technology Law courses offered by UNSW Law and half from the Media & Journalism courses offered by the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences.
Undergraduate degree – minimum credit average
