Graduate Diploma in Internet Communications - Posgrado en Comunicación Digital
The Graduate Diploma in Law, Media and Journalism is a joint program of UNSW Law and the Journalism Media Research Centre in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
The Graduate Diploma in Law, Media and Journalism is a specialist degree intended for individuals with an interest in the developing relationship between media and law. It is open to students from a media background, law background, or who have previously undertaken a Bachelors degree but have no prior experience in either media or law.
As new media moves towards becoming the dominant form of mass communication, it is important for individuals from a range of backgrounds - law, government, business, journalism, corporate communications - to understand how best to use these emergent platforms and the legal rights and responsibilities that accompany such usage. In terms of the law, established doctrines including defamation and privacy are being used in new ways to cope with the regulatory impact of this increased reliance on the digital sphere.
