This is the only programme of its kind in the country and teachers on the programme have produced seminal texts on the field of peace journalism. They also have good links with relevant bodies (MoD, CND, Peace Pledge Union, RAF, Amnesty International).

This is an innovative, practical and theoretical MA involving the
study of war reporting, international human rights and the role of
journalism in conflict resolution.

This course offers a challenging postgraduate programme of study with hands-on experience in print and online media, radio and TV. It provides a professional education in journalism, equipping graduates with the practical and intellectual skills necessary for careers in the media.

Students who are concerned with human rights and issues relating to war and peace, and who want to learn the journalistic skills necessary to communicate this to a wider public, will thrive on this course.

You will undertake the academic analysis of a range of critical approaches to the study of war and the media, journalism and conflict resolution and journalism and international human rights. Your final project will focus on a specific relevant area.
