Journalism

Become a trained multimedia journalist with our brand new postgraduate taught Journalism Masters. This carefully designed course allows you to specialise in a chosen subject, be it sport, fashion, science, music or politics, and build a portfolio of work. We couple this with a built in work experience module at a media outlet to practice your professional skills and make you more employable in the media industry. Taught by a well-connected team of practising journalists and multi-media academics, this Masters has been specifically designed to meet the needs of media employers right now. As well as developing the fundamentals of accurate storytelling and honing a keen news sense, you will be taught advanced skills for print, radio and TV broadcast. You will learn through practical sessions which focus on technical skills and key software packages as well as a range of lectures on key themes such as ethics and media law led by industry experts. You'll also develop through workshops, newsdays and regular tutorial support. You will be based in our state-of-the-art Journalism and Media centre where you will have 24 hour access to a well-appointed newsroom, online radio station and editing suites.
