Journalism and Media Studies

This course is for you if you have an academic interest in exploring key theoretical issues and debates about journalism and news production in relation to contemporary media and society. However, it also includes a substantial training component to develop your essential journalistic skills in a multimedia context. This course enables you to: master skills and techniques in researching and writing news and feature stories for print and online platforms, as well as subediting and print news design; contextualise journalistic practice within a theoretical framework of journalism studies; understand the many transitional processes in the news landscape at local, regional and global level; have a critical understanding of, and an ability to analyse, current theories and debates surrounding the media and society in general. At the end of the course, you have the opportunity to apply all your knowledge and skills to conduct a substantial practical journalism project or a research dissertation under the supervision of an experienced member of faculty.
