Course content

News Journalism is the National Council for the Training of Journalists’ top performing postgraduate journalism course for 2016 and is aimed at those wishing to pursue a career as a news journalist, whether at a hyperlocal, regional, or national level.

You will learn the basics of how to find, produce, and publish a story using the most effective – and relevant – tools available. You will be taught how to write news, features, and opinion, how to research stories, build up contacts, and work a news patch that they are allocated.

In addition, you will also learn how to shoot short videos and stills on mobile for online reporting on our own public-facing news site and how to maximise the use of social media to share and promote your stories.
