Course content

MA Fashion Journalism is a well-established course that has been designed for graduates/professionals who wish to explore the changing face of fashion journalism, whether that be from an academic, consumer or entrepreneurial perspective.

The course offers a proactive approach to the rapidly changing global landscape that challenges the role of the fashion media and examines how, as a practitioner, you can successfully disseminate an editorial message within it.

In the light of globalisation and numerous ongoing controversies surrounding the fashion industry, the course examines a number of sociological and ethical issues that are emerging for journalists and content creators.

Students are encouraged to challenge the current fashion system and develop disruptive editorial strategies that could potentially have both social and politically active outcomes.

Focusing on both the written word and the curated fashion image, the course teaches expertise in both commercial content creation and traditional journalism as well as publishing; in short, how to be a commentator, editor and entrepreneur, both digitally and in print.
