Print Journalism


The means of delivering news is evolving but the skills required to publish news remain the same. More than ever, newspaper professionals must consistently demonstrate the qualities of precision, accuracy, speed, fairness, understanding and public responsibility. Here at IIJNM, the print stream focuses on good, solid, hard news reporting for newsprint and magazine.

Students of Print Journalism gain these skills through a blend of theoretical and practical courses and workshops. What you produce goes online at the end of every production day on The Weekly Observer.

Whether it is newspaper or magazine journalism, students learn reporting, editing, page design and newsroom management. You will use industry standard software to produce newspapers and magazines on a weekly basis.Teaching methods include lectures, case studies, seminars with guest speakers, individual assignments and workshops. The Institute prepares you to step into the nation’s newsrooms on day-one of your employment.
