The department is conveniently situated on campus in Protea House, a neatly renovated Edwardian building and national monument, and offers students an unparalleled working environment as far as scenic beauty and ambience is concerned, allowing them to pursue their studies with the zest it deserves. 

As part of the honours level course, the BPhil in Journalism, two dozen or so aspiring journalists with diverse academic and cultural backgrounds are afforded the opportunity each year to spend a whole year gaining invaluable practical journalistic skills, as well as being exposed to the ethical, technological, marketing, managerial, sociological and historical basis of the media.
