Course content

The Master of International Journalism combines an emphasis on key skills - newsgathering and newswriting, video, audio, digital and social media production – with an international outlook on how different media operate in different cultures and markets. It also focuses on particular areas where a transnational perspective and knowledge is important, such as business and finance journalism.

The degree supports understanding of the different expectations, pressures and opportunities of journalism in different industry, regulatory and cultural environments, and is particularly tailored for students from an international background.

It prepares graduates to be confident and knowledgeable practitioners in a diverse and rapidly changing international field of practice, while equipping them with the skills to successfully operate in the fast-changing environment of digital journalism.
