Multimedia Journalism

MA Multimedia Journalism will enable you to cover any news story for the web, television, radio or print. It also offers the opportunity to specialise in areas such as radio and TV documentary, investigative journalism, and digital magazines. In the ever-changing media landscape, core journalistic skills are more at a premium than ever. The mix of broadcasting and online writing in this intensely practical course sharpens the defining elements of cutting-edge journalism. You will produce live news and broadcast bulletins across the internet, gathering news and feature stories both nationally and locally. Using professional-standard studios and newsrooms, you will be encouraged to take key roles as editors, news editors, convergence editors, and reporters on all of our media outlets. The ways in which we select our students are socially inclusive, and we have a broad mix of international and UK students studying with us. The course suits new entrants to the profession and those wishing to extend their skills across different media, at home and abroad. It is accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC), which means it teaches practical journalism skills to a professional standard.
