The School of Journalism Online trains godly communicators with the skills of journalism to engage readers with God’s truth. Students who are already in Australia can join us for onsite training, immersed in our international missions community.
You will grow in your knowledge of God’s desire for journalism, focussing on the character of a godly writer, identity and Biblical worldview, to create a foundation for learning the different skills of journalism. Each week examines topics such as: God the creator, interviewing, ethics, creative nonfiction writing, reporting, platforms of communication and media.
You will practise different aspects of journalism, from research, to interviewing, to writing feature pieces, while exploring different forms of media that can be used to creatively reach different audiences. Our ultimate aim is to use journalism to make God known in the nations!
