Department of Journalism, Film and Television, University of Johannesburg
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.
In 2011 UJ Journalism and the BBC’s Africa Bureau in Johannesburg launched an internship programme to provide work experience for a month to 24 of UJ Journalism’s Honours and third year BA journalism students. The BBC’s Africa bureau is one of the busiest bureaus on the African continent and this is proving a highly successful partnership which brings mutual benefit to the BBC and UJ alike. BBC Bureau Chief in Johannesburg Peter Burdin says:
“I’m delighted the BBC is able to contribute to the creation of a new generation of journalists in South Africa. The UJ Interns receive hands-on experience of working in an international newsroom. In turn the Interns bring a youthful energy, original stories and new insights about South Africa and the world around them. Some students have got their pieces broadcast on air or have carried out research or produced news stories with our senior correspondents.”
Candidates are selected twice a year through a competitive process. For more information please contact Ylva Rodny-Gumede on firstname.lastname@example.org
