Course summary

What is Journalism and Communications MA by Research?

Research a topic of your choice or work on an extended creative project. Boost your professional practice and develop high-level skills and knowledge to progress your career.

You’ll benefit from an experienced team of research-active scholars and industry practitioners who can offer supervision across a range of topics. Staff specialisms include:

  • ethics in sports journalism
  • communications-management for NGOs
  • protest campaigns
  • magazine journalism
  • broadcast journalism
  • live reporting
  • digital media in live sporting events.

Study style

You’ll have the opportunity to choose between a research-based or practice-based project. For example, write a thesis of 80,000 words for the research-based PhD or, for the practice-based option, create a piece of content or stage a multi-media event and accompany it with a much-shorter written component. As a practice-based student, you’ll have access to our state-of-the-art studios and equipment.

Students who haven’t already completed a relevant Master’s degree are normally required to complete two research-methods modules: Philosophy and Approaches to Research, and Methodologies and Methods. These sessions and their related assignments will help you lay the critical foundations for your project.
