What Our Students & Alumni Say

We followed up with some past and current students to see what a difference their Journalism and Media Communications course at Griffith College has made to them.

Joseph Okoh

Undertaking the Master's in Journalism was one of the best decisions ever. The skills I acquired from the course have been invaluable in my career. The internship the college offered allowed me work with a high-profile radio station. As an international student, I found that exposure invaluable and a launchpad for my first journalism job in Ireland. Since graduating, I have worked across Dublin City FM, The Irish Times and The Irish Examiner and currently work as a multimedia journalist for RTÉ.
