This degree is designed for students wishing to study journalism in a critical and reflective manner. Moral panics, clashes in culture and religion, and the effects of globalisation are studied within the framework of an over-riding influence: the effects on the media of the digital revolution. Students have the opportunity to explore specific themes in depth and to conduct original research.
A minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree. Mature students and candidates with non-standard qualifications may also apply if they have substantial professional or other relevant experience.
Modules include: Writing, subbing and designing for newspapers; online journalism; propaganda and public opinion; international journalism; moral panics; research methods; dissertation.
Assessment is normally by coursework. Individual work will be assessed by written assignments. This will usually take the form of a portfolio of practical work although some of the modules contain elements of theoretical research. There are no examinations.
