City, University of London
This course is suitable for students from any degree background with an interest in current affairs. Students will have a keen interest in the media, specifically in news and/or features in print and/or online journalism. The course has an exceptional reputation and an outstanding graduate employment record. The degree has been helping aspiring journalists into employment since 1982. The course combines professional skills training in reporting, interviewing, writing, editing, research and newspaper production (in print and online) with a concern for professional standards and critical and ethical reflection. All students undertake at least seven weeks of work placements during the course. The department includes former Managing Editor of The Times, Professor George Brock; Professor David Leigh of The Guardian; ITN's chief lawyer, John Battle; and award-winning Freedom of Information expert, Heather Brooke. We have been running Journalism courses at City since 1976. In the years since, over 5,000 students have graduated and are now working in the media around the world.
