Course summary

This degree is designed for students pursuing a career in journalism, media and communications. It provides highly relevant education and proficiency in print, broadcast and online journalism and relevant studies in humanities, such as politics and the history of journalism. Journalism education at City has a real-world emphasis. Time is spent in small workshops learning the multimedia skills required for a career in 21st century journalism: from writing, reporting and interviewing to social media analytics and preparing page layouts on screen. You will learn how to write news and features, use the professional standard TV studio and make video and audio packages and websites. Professional work experience is the key to getting a job in journalism and students are supported to arrange placements during their degree. This is complemented by academic subjects such as history, politics and law which are delivered through lectures and seminars and assessed through examination and essays. We encourage our students to be Journalists from their first day and take global perspective. Students take a core language module in their first year and ,many of our students have gone to do a study abroad or exchange at an international institution. We have a respected Journalism alumni network who are working across Journalism and related industries. Graduates from our BA Journalism have gone on to work in media organisations such as the BBC, Sky News, The Sun, Metro, Associated Press, talkSPORT, MailOnline, The Economist and Men’s Health and into marketing and corporate communications for organisations such as Nike and Asos. The journalism degree can also be a gateway into postgraduate study and careers in NGOs and the Civil Service.
