Course summary

ABOUT THE COURSE

Do you have a passion for journalism? Are you looking to further your career and increase your knowledge of multimedia communications and content? With an emphasis on brand journalism, content creation and campaign management across paid, owned, earned and shared platforms, Solent’s MA Journalism and Multimedia Communications will leave you well-placed to bring these skills to the workplace.

Moving forward from traditional news media journalism, this course focuses on the strategic development of brand and corporate journalism content. Students on this course will learn how to commission and manage work from PR, marketing and advertising specialists, to ultimately integrate brand journalism and run corporate newsrooms.

Journalism is about crafting and managing communication, altering perceptions and changing people’s lives. The power of a journalist comes through their ability to hold people to account – this is a central foundation to the course, which places students alongside the creative pathways of advertising and public relations to forge an innovative and far reaching working relationship. The course focuses on journalism as an originator of content and a driver of perception as they meet the boundaries of communications.

The Professional Practice module gives students work-placement and freelance opportunities, enhancing their professional skillset. Students will also be able to pitch for paid work at Solent Creatives, who specialise in connecting students with businesses who need creative support. These projects can help students to strengthen their portfolio of professional work.

The course concludes with a major project or dissertation. This is another opportunity for students to specialise their knowledge, conducting in-depth research into an area that complements their unique career ambitions.

What does this course lead to?

Journalism courses here at Solent University prepare students for a variety of careers both within the traditional journalism newsroom, but also within the wider world of corporate communications.

Who is this course for?

Graduates who have studied a journalism degree or communications-related discipline and who wish to further explore new and emerging communications channels will be well-suited to this master’s programme.
