After studying international relations, a passion for the media and for news drove Richard Henderson to study journalism.
Graduate Diploma in Journalism Master of Communication
Associate Editor, FundFire
Many people say you don’t need a degree to be able to work in news, but journalism is a profession that needs a strong foundation in skills and knowledge, taught by those who have been there and done it.
“The best factor about studying journalism at RMIT was learning from journalists who are very highly regarded in the industry. The specific skills and ways of looking at issues that they imparted to us were very valuable.”
“The collegiality of the study body in the Graduate Diploma Journalism program was very strong, and made studying the course very exciting.”
Richard is currently the Associate Editor of FundFire, reporting on the asset management industry and editing the work of a team of journalists with the managing editor. He has previously written for a newspaper and hosted a travel TV program in Vietnam, worked for a newspaper and a finance magazine in London and the US.
“The hardest jobs to get are the first in your career, but if you take a job you’re not super happy about, you can always change down the track.”
“If you are passionate about news then there’s no job more enjoyable than journalism.” “It’s a privilege to be a journalist, I’m always getting better at what I do, and I work with amazing people.”
