Course content

This course is designed to equip you with the core practical and theoretical skills of journalism preparing you to work in the media or related careers. It will also help you develop the ability to reflect critically on the nature and limitations of news coverage.

Some of your modules will be taught on campus, but much of your teaching will take place at our dedicated media centre in the heart of Norwich, ‘Broadcast House.’ We are based in the former studios of Radio Broadland and Heart Radio in the centre of this attractive and newsworthy city. The building was refitted by UEA in 2021 and is home to three purpose built soundproofed studios, equipped with a radio studio, a TV studio, and a podcast studio. We also have a 24-seat newsroom with Adobe Audition, Premier Pro and a modern TV gallery.

You’ll take an international overview of media law and political systems, and have the chance to consider the demands made by correspondents reporting from beyond their home territories.

You’ll take compulsory modules that will teach you practical skills, give you an understanding of ethical journalism, and help you see the role of the media from a broader perspective. You’ll also select an optional module to further your specific interests.

You’ll practice interviewing, reporting, video and broadcast production, and learn how to develop and structure news stories for different media and hear from guest speakers from the world of industry.

Our school is home to internationally recognised experts, and you will have access to their knowledge in the fields of public affairs, politics, international relations and cultural change.
