A 1st or upper 2nd Class undergraduate Honours Degree (or equivalent) in an appropriate humanities or social sciences discipline. We also welcome applicants who do not have this academic qualification who are able to demonstrate in their application that they have relevant professional/creative skills and experience. In the induction week, you are asked to take a 90-minute NCTJ aptitude test on competency in English and an awareness of journalistic conventions, plus a voice test. If you do not pass the test, you are normally advised to consider switching to the MA in journalism and media studies or the MA in journalism and documentary practice.
Autumn term: broadcast journalism (radio); international journalism in transition; journalism, law and power; news researching and writing in a multimedia environment; shorthand. Spring term: broadcast journalism (TV); journalism, law and power (continued); shorthand; either: global news industries; new developments in digital media. Summer term: you undertake a work placement and journalism project or a 15000-word journalism research dissertation, supervised by research-active faculty.
Assessment includes NCTJ exams, term papers, portfolios of journalism, multimedia artefacts, social media, and critical reflections on practical work and examinations.
