The UQ Journalism and Communication Society, also known as JACS, was founded in 2006 to meet the professional, academic and social needs of the journalism and communication student body at the University of Queensland. Run by students, we represent the student body!
JACS holds various events dedicated to helping students connect with their peers and professionals in the Journalism and Communication fields. We hold two Professional Networking Evenings every year, where professionals from all types of industries offer one on one advice about what it takes to work in the profession. By becoming a member of JACS, you’ll have first access to events such as Communication Workshops, Professional Networking Evenings, and the Annual Ball. You will also receive discounts to several businesses around Brisbane, from cinemas to nightclubs! Check out our website for all the sponsorship details.
The JACS Executive has been elected by other JACS members and is there to share the best opportunities available to others. Whether it’s for socialising or professional development, the Executive wants to help make your time at university the most fulfilling it can be!
