Course content

The MA in International Journalism is a full-time three semester programme covering the practice and theory of journalism in an international context. It is particularly suited to international students as, in contrast to the MA in Journalism, it does not assume knowledge of the Irish context. It prepares students to work on international new stories, whether for national or regional news organisations or with international news agencies or media organisations.
