Course content

The MA emphasises practical skills in both PR and journalism from the outset, with students developing and presenting their own bodies of professional work. The practical aspect of the course will culminate in an optional accredited internship and mandatory professional research project, including live PR work and journalism and, at its end, a critical reflection which will require students to relate their work to wider thinking about these industries.

At the same time the programme provides an in-depth academic examination of the PR industry and journalism, their histories, how they function in the contemporary world and the role they play in international society and economic life – especially in relation to traditional and new media, business and the full range of marketing disciplines.
