The different strands are designed to give you the practical and intellectual skills necessary to pursue a career in either print, as a web journalist, or in broadcast journalism.

Teaching is done in small groups by experienced industry professionals, using up to date professional-standard news production soft-ware, video and audio equipment for your journalism assignments. You will also be introduced to web-journalism and blogging. You can also acquire the skills of a specialist correspondent by choosing from a range of specialist journalism options.
