Course summary

This is a course for storytellers with a mission to inform. You will gain a practical introduction to the core skills of modern journalism, particularly broadcast and online, and examine the media’s relationship with society. If you have developed a particular interest or specialism from your first degree, or are thinking of pursuing a career in general news journalism, it will give you space to develop your skills, researching, writing and presenting the stories you find.

You will explore the rapidly changing world of the professional journalist, and gain the legal knowledge to navigate the complex world of media law and ethics. You’ll work in modern TV studios, develop online content, and record interviews and news reports. We have a range of media partners – including the BBC, Mustard, and Future radio – who from time to time offer the students production opportunities.

If you have an inquiring mind and are passionate about online and broadcast news, this is the course for you.
