Journalism

This programme offers students the opportunity to acquire a fast-track but grounding in practical journalistic skills, a strong working knowledge of the media industry and the principal contemporary theories of media and culture, and an ability to develop professional writing skills across journalistic genres; beyond the core skills delivered in the fast-track module, subsequent modules combine professional skills with a more conceptual understanding of how to interpret and communicate ideas in professional media work; the programme equips students with skills relevant to a wide range of professional contexts, and accordingly covers diverse aspects such as web journalism and other online media production, public relations, professional communications, and other skills relevant to the creative industries; students are strongly encouraged to develop their own areas of interest as well as to identify emerging areas of demand in the industry.
