Course content

Our course explores in both theoretical and practical terms current issues in journalism in the context of the digital revolution and media convergence.

  • It combines solid foundations of journalism practice with the latest developments in multimedia techniques, digital journalism and social media
  • It puts students through the fast-paced newsroom environment experience and offers opportunities to get engaged in specialisms such as foreign affairs correspondent, health and science reporter, business and finance writer or data journalist
  • It builds students’ professional portfolios, launches live brief media and journalism projects and embeds students in community programmes on work experience.

With guest lecturers from the BBC and other media organisations, practical workshops and newsdays in industry standard radio and TV studios, the syllabus is as close to real life in the world of digital media as one can get. The theory informs the practice to produce critical and autonomous professionals capable of working with confidence in any global media environment.
