University of Sheffield Journalism

As part of your course, you’ll practise journalism every day, covering your own patch in the city. Every assignment will present a different challenge. You could be on location filming for a documentary. You may be reporting from a courtroom on the details of a criminal prosecution. Another day could find you interviewing a celebrity or a sports star.

Your work experience will enable you to build up a portfolio of work and put together a CV. Our many connections in the media industry help to open up a huge range of work experience opportunities.

We teach everything: all the relevant law, history, ethics and standards. We’ll help you to develop practical skills such as research, communication and interviewing techniques. You’ll get to know your chosen profession inside out and build up your own network of like-minded people.

This degree is double-accredited: by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Professional Publishing Association.
