Journalists have traditionally sought to provide news and information in an accurate, timely and accessible manner to enable the public to make informed decisions.

The aim at the Graduate School of Journalism is to develop graduates who understand the evolving media environment and use journalistic practices to contribute to meaningful public discourse across all forms of media.
