Course summary

Course description

Accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists

News reporting takes expertise in creating and publishing digital content alongside a solid grasp of traditional skills and knowledge. Take this degree and you’ll develop both – in our online newsrooms and out on the streets of the city during our production newsdays, when you'll work with a team to publish your stories on a real, public-facing news website and social media channel. You'll use your learning in newswriting, web publishing, shorthand, video, media law and ethics to hunt down and write up stories to meet real-time deadlines with your team. Our alumni are intelligent and successful journalists who are excellent at both traditional newswriting
and digital mobile journalism.

In November 2017, MA Journalism at Sheffield was rated the UK’s top-performing postgraduate course by the National Council for the Training of Journalists.

Teaching

There are lectures, seminars, group workshops, individual and team assignments.

Assessment

You’re assessed on essays, examinations and practical journalism work – producing news stories, newspaper pages, web pages and portfolios.

You’ll also have the chance to sit external examinations set by the NCTJ.
