Cardiff University and Guardian News & Media will collaborate to offer a new Masters degree in journalism with digital media. 26/09/2012
The year long programme will teach students the core elements of journalism with a focus on digital, reporting, writing, publishing and technical skills. The course will take place in a central London location and will be taught by a mix of guest lecturers and a permanent director of studies appointed by the university.
The editor-in-chief of Guardian News & Media, Alan Rusbridger, said, 'Journalism is changing at the speed of light. By partnering with a well-established and respected university department we can offer a Masters degree that will produce a generation of students who are completely up to date with the skills needed to succeed in journalism today.'
Richard Sambrook, director of the centre for journalism at Cardiff University, explained, 'Cardiff has been a pioneer in journalism education since 1970 and has impressive alumni, including John Witherow, editor of the Sunday Times; Nick Watt, political correspondent at the Guardian; Kevin Maguire, associate editor at the Daily Mirror; and Susanna Reid, presenter, BBC Breakfast.
'Partnering with the Guardian will allow us to reach and engage with a new, potential audience that values the highest standards of journalism and is interested in technological developments', added professor Sambrook.
The first students will be enrolled on the course in September 2013, with further details about the Masters degree to be released in due course.
