Course content

Journalism remains a crucial part of democratic public life. This innovative, intensive MA’s global focus guides you as you learn to research and write news and features, creating and adapting news stories across platforms.

This course focuses on developing the practical skills and the critical knowledge to help you to reflect on your professional practice in an international context. You’ll learn to:

  • understand and debate the broader issues driving news organisations across the world
  • be knowledgeable about the functions of journalism in a contemporary environment
  • produce copy for a range of platforms including print, online, radio, tv and social media
  • critically evaluate and analyse a range of journalistic outputs and their characteristics.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected in our prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
