We’ll prepare you for the multimedia environment by teaching you how to create audio and video for the web and how to use social media effectively.

Teaching

There are lectures, seminars, group workshops, individual and team assignments.

Assessment

You’re assessed on essays, examinations and practical broadcast journalism – producing news stories, radio and TV news items and features, web pages and portfolios.
