Course summary

This course is designed to focus on the reporting of the arts for those wishing to enter one of the fastest-growing areas of journalism. As well as the opportunity to learn the essential craft of reporting, you will also have the chance to develop the analytical skills necessary to reflect on developments in the arts. You can learn to appreciate artistic movements, genres and the sociological factors that underpin the culture industries, and to communicate this to an audience. This programme emphasises reporting and reviewing the creative arts from the niche, such as sculpture, to the more popular, such as cinema and television, to emerging fields like web-based production. It involves a work placement scheme where you have the opportunity to develop the transferable skills necessary for career advancement. The School of English & Journalism is one of the first institutions in Europe to be awarded a 'Recognised for Excellence' accolade by the European Journalism Training Association (EJTA). Features: Journalism teaching at Lincoln takes place in small groups within a newsroom setting, with plenty of opportunities for one-to-one interaction with tutors. The programme has a careful balance of practical skills using multi-platform media with the knowledge and intellectual skills to understand the world of modern journalism. A London-based art reporting module is a special feature of the programme. Career and Personal Development:This course aims to prepare graduates for careers in print, broadcast and digital journalism and for roles in corporate communications and public relations. Recent graduates have gone on to work for the BBC, national and international newspapers and specialist magazines, including The Scotsman, the Irish Independent and the Yorkshire Post. Careers Services: The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University.
