Course content

The course is suitable for graduates and experienced journalists. It has an international context suitable for students from across the globe.

The way we teach and deliver this course is continually informed by best practice across the industry.

You will undertake three intensive taught modules in professional practice in the third semester instead of a traditional research dissertation. These modules will be taught by specialist tutors from the industrial sector with strong backgrounds in journalism on print, broadcast and digital platforms.

The three compulsory modules in semester three are: Advanced Reporting Skills, Online Journalism, and Broadcast and Video Journalism. As part of the broadcast module, you will prepare a video news package and you will spend a day working in modern TV studios, presenting your news packages in the form of an evening television magazine programme.
