Summary This paper investigates if and how issues of gender are taught in undergraduate journalism courses in Australia. It examines published descriptions of undergraduate journalism degrees and majors in 30 Australian universities, providing a collective case study about the teaching of gender in journalism education. The research finds that no journalism program offers a unit that specifically addresses the portrayal of women in the media or, importantly, the gendered production of news and gendered newsroom culture. This paper posits the importance of gender education in journalism courses, hypothesises why it is ignored as a valuable part of journalism education, and suggests how tertiary journalism education could address systemic inequity for women in media organisations by adapting its curriculum.
