Course content

MA Journalism with Development Studies is an interdisciplinary course offered jointly by LSBU's School of Arts and Creative Industries and School of Law and Social Sciences. It brings together our established expertise in Development Studies with our industry-informed provision in journalism education.

Development issues such as migration, poverty, the environment, aid and governance are increasingly relevant in journalism, and this course develops a theoretical understanding of these issues alongside practical journalism skills.

The course offers hands-on practical professional training in the production techniques relevant for a range of multi-media and multi-platform broadcast journalistic tasks. This includes creating and presenting content for the Global Campus Network while conforming to national and international ethical and legal frameworks. The course also provides a solid grounding in key theories, concepts and debates around development and contemporary development journalism.

You’ll have access to our new media facilities in Elephant Studio at LSBU and will be offered a work placement option in semester 2.
