University of Sheffield
If you're interested in learning about how journalism is practised across the world and what threats and challenges it faces, and if you want to get some hands-on practical experience then the MA Global Journalism is for you. The MA Global Journalism combines theoretical and practical concerns with regard to the principles of a free press and its relationship to political and civil institutions. It examines, compares and contrasts the diverse forms of regulation and restrictions - both legitimate and illegitimate - surrounding the practice of journalism around the world. You'll engage in debates about the key issues facing news journalism in a comparative global context. The course will also give you hands-on practical experience in writing for various media platforms and communicating news in the contemporary global environment. Teaching on Global Journalism extends beyond the classroom. You'll have the opportunity to visit BBC studios and attend conferences that give insights into the daily practice of news journalism across the world. We also host our own Global Journalism Film Festival and collaborate with the European Parliament in Brussels.
There are a limited number of external bursaries for UK students on the Print, Magazine and Broadcast courses, from the AHRC, Scott Trust and Journalism Diversity Fund.
