This course develops the skills and knowledge vital to being a journalist in the digital age. If you’ve got a nose for a good story and like to know what’s going on in the world, the BA in Journalism can help you turn your curiosity into a career.

You’ll learn all aspects of reporting, from researching stories and carrying out interviews, to writing articles for newspapers and online. You’ll also be making radio pieces, filming video reports, designing magazines, writing blogs and using a variety of social media tools.

Something that makes Huddersfield stand out is the focus we put on public relations. You’ll study the relationship between journalism and PR, and learn about how to become a successful PR practitioner. It’s a rewarding career many of our Journalism alumni have gone on to enjoy.

Experienced professionals at the forefront of their fields will teach you the practical skills of journalism and PR, as we get you out of the classroom and into the real world from day one. Putting your skills into context are modules looking at the fascinating history and politics of the press, plus ethics and media law. You’ll also meet a wide range of guest tutors and speakers, giving you the chance to network with experts in the industry.
