In this episode of Where RU Now? we hear stories of current second-year students who always had one goal: to study journalism.

Siphesihle Sibaya introduces Leandra Reddy who shares how they ended up in the School of Journalism and Media Studies.

The School of Journalism and Media Studies allows students to specialize in various media production specialties. It is Valentine Ntusi’s hope to specialize in photography.
