Course summary

From the BBC’s ‘Breaking News’ stories shared on social media to Al Jazeeras podcasts published on their website – Foreign Correspondence professionals are taking advantage of digital technology to reach diversifying audiences.

On this course, through either full-time or part-time study, you’ll learn how to think and act like an international journalist.

You will:

  • Get immersed in the busy, friendly and relaxed urban environment of Greater Manchester – the northern capital of rock, music, top-rated football and a great centre of learning and culture.
  • Study at our state-of-the-art MediaCityUK campus, which is the media hub of the north, home to the BBC and ITV northern headquarters.
  • Be mentored by our well-connected and experienced broadcast and digital journalism practitioners who have worked with the BBC, ITV and other international and national media brands.
  • Learn everything from the foundations and challenges of international journalism practice, specialist areas of international journalism to the technology, software and platforms used by digital journalists.
  • Experience a real-life environment of digital newsrooms, use our state-of-the-art TV and radio studios and explore specialisms such as foreign affairs, health and science reporting, business and finance writing or data journalism.
  • Network with industry through our special events and live brief journalism projects.
  • Once graduated, have a MA diploma, the option to gain a NCTJ accreditation and an industry-grade professional portfolio of work that can be used for PhD or potential employer applications.

EMPLOYMENT

Graduates of our digital journalism masters can enter careers in various forms of journalism, including print, broadcast or online. You could work in reporting or management roles, public relations, research, or media analysis, both in this country or abroad. As a journalist, you could work as a UK-based foreign correspondent travelling abroad or full-time in overseas postings.
