Course combines practical and theoretical approaches to journalism as a multi-media skill which can be applied to newspapers, magazines, the web and television; practical component focuses first on the basic journalistic skills common to the different media, and moves on to explore comparative skills and production values as well as production skills for print and web (and a brief introduction to television); students are encouraged to do work experience; the wider theoretical component introduces critical and theoretical perspectives on media and culture, encouraging students to ground these within their own practical work; although there are short practical introductory courses in internet and television production, for the final examination students produce a portfolio of print journalism work.
