As a vocational degree, there is a great deal of emphasis on practical work-related learning. More traditional lectures and seminars are also employed, particularly around those subjects requiring a detailed, factual knowledge base. We see it as an essential component of the degree that you engage in reflective practice which informs your future personal development. You are expected to read around the subject and research and produce media products (such as stories, video and audio) in your own time. In taught sessions you experience a range of learning and teaching strategies to help you form both a theoretical and practical understanding of the field of journalism.
You will be evaluated on an individual basis and the level of your achievement, experience and suitability for the degree will be properly assessed. You should normally have a first or 2.1 in a recognised undergraduate programme.
Core Modules: Accessible and adaptable systems; changing landscapes in media and communications; final project (dissertation); multimedia storytelling; news production; researching journalism and communications.
A range of assessment methods is used, ranging from practical production tasks to traditional essay assignments. You undertake a self-conceived piece of independent research and produce an extended essay under the guidance of a nominated supervisor.
