Graduate Diploma in Journalism Studies
Graduated in 2012
Senior Marketing and Communications Advisor
After four years working in a marketing and communications role, I wanted the best advice on how to hone my writing skills and develop the raw talent I had in my chosen field. Massey’s journalism school’s reputation drew me to enrol, and once there I was delighted with the course content, which was practical, diverse and had helpful real-world connections.
We were guided by lecturers and tutors who were inspiring and had practical experience.
As I was working part-time while completing my studies, I was able to use my own not-for-profit organisation as a case study and this added fantastic value for my workplace. Shortly after completing the course, I was promoted to Marketing and Communications Manager. I am now a Senior Marketing and Communications Advisor for a New Zealand Government agency.
I truly do recommend Massey’s Graduate Diploma in Journalism Studies course. It’s stimulating, practical and well-directed. Going back to university was incredibly rewarding. You learn more because you have some context to apply to the ideas discussed and, back at the office, you are more confident in your work as you are armed with the most up-to-date knowledge. And knowledge is power!
