What the students say

Ashley Argoon – Walkley Young Journalist of the Year

Ashley Argoon“I have no doubt strong support and encouragement from staff at Monash is the main reason I now have a journalism cadetship. My degree provided me with the challenge, the skills, and the instruction I needed to succeed. It taught me that with commitment and perseverance, you can achieve what you think are some of the most unattainable goals.”

– Ashley Argoon, Border Mail, Albury-Wodonga

Louis Nelson

“I’m a journalist at the Latrobe Valley Express, a Fairfax regional paper in Gippsland. I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Journalism at Monash in off campus mode. I think it is a top degree. The amount of enthusiasm and expertise that the staff bring to the degree is fantastic. If you are proactive about it they’re going to respond to that and help you maximise on whatever potential you’ve got as an up and coming journalist. I would recommend it strongly. A degree is very important for anyone wanting to get into the industry these days, because they are looking for the most broadly skilled candidates.”
