The elements that distinguish journalism from other forms of communication make it essential to democratic societies. 

These include journalistic independence, a discipline of verification, an obligation to the truth and a loyalty to the public – characteristics that separate journalism from an expanding flow of data, as the digital age rewrites the role of the news media in society.

The Journalism program is offered by Monash University .
