Course summary

Robert Gordon University offers an intensive and practical BA (Hons) Journalism degree that will equip you with the key skills needed for a rewarding career in Journalism or related industries. Our multimedia course provides you with critical knowledge and specialist theoretical, analytical and production skills for working in this fast-paced environment.

The course has an emphasis on practical learning with a grounding in the theoretical aspects of journalistic practice. You will gain practical experience in reporting across print, broadcast, and electronic platforms. You will learn first-hand from experienced journalists by participating in ‘live’ news days, visiting local broadcasting organisations, and listening to guest speakers. You will study how news is sourced, regulated, produced, and consumed, and examine the effects of this on different audiences, developing transferable skills which are essential for the wider media profession.

Learning Methods

You will learn through a range of delivery modes including lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical-based activities. The nature of the course is interactive: you will apply theory to practice, and consider a range of problems, issues and case studies. Academic modules are typically delivered by a lecture followed by a seminar where you can discuss or apply the thinking to relevant tasks. This may involve analysing texts or giving oral presentations. The practical classes will involve sourcing and writing stories, conducting interviews, filming, editing and participating in news days. Modules, such as investigative journalism, may include input from a range of industry experts.
