Course summary

Choose this course if you have a passion for writing; whether your ambition is to write for magazines, newspapers, radio, television or new media or you’re simply interested in improving your communication and writing skills.This exciting degree brings together the study of English, as a medium for communicating our experience, and journalism – the practice of making news and crafting the narratives that become the backdrop to our lives.Covering all aspects of the journalism industry, including print, digital and broadcast, we examine how the world of language and the media influence our lives at home and internationally.There’ll be plenty of opportunities for hands-on practical experience, producing your own news and current affairs for a variety of print and online media audiences. You can design and edit our student-run Creative Writing Magazine, CovWords, or support the Student Union’s flagship Coventry Source newspaper and radio station. You can also apply for a work placement, which has led previous students to work for companies like Jaguar Land Rover.This course also sits alongside allied programmes such as, Journalism BA and Journalism and Media BA. As such, students on the Journalism and English BA benefit from collaboration with students on partner programmes, each with a distinctive ethos but with a shared focus on Journalism in theory and practice. The course is also situated within the school of Media and Performing Arts where further vibrant collaboration takes place.
