PhD

philchubbMonash Journalism staff are active researchers in Journalism Practice (research using journalism as the research practice) and Journalism Studies (research about journalism).  Staff and students conduct their journalism practice in strict accordance with the Australian Journalists’ Code of Ethics, which in turn reflects the ethical principles and standards of the International Federation of Journalists, and with regard to the regulatory processes of the Australian Press Council.

If you go to the homepages of our individual staff members you will see the current research with which we are engaged.  

We have a strong doctoral research program involving both a coursework component and thesis, and the thesis can be produced as either the traditional scholarly monograph in the PhD program, or as a substantial piece of original journalistic research through the PhD (Journalism) program. We encourage innovative approaches to Journalism Practice. 

Our staff welcome enquiries about doctoral supervision in their particular areas of research interest and expertise and for general information about the doctoral program you can contact Associate Professor Philip Chubb.
