Course summary

Course overview

Our MA Journalism is an intense programme that prepares graduates for the dynamic and competitive world of journalism and communications.

It has the rare advantage of dual accreditation by the National Council for the Training of Journalism (NCTJ) and the British Journalism Training Council (BJTC). This highly regarded combination, along with our impressive work placement and industry mentoring programmes, opens the doors to organisations including the BBC, ITV, The Express, Sky Sports and a whole network of local, regional and national newspapers and radio stations.

About this course

The MA Journalism provides a comprehensive understanding of professional journalism practice, including researching and substantiating news stories, interviewing techniques and establishing contacts. Hands-on camera, studio, editing and mobile journalism skills are taught so that our trainees are confident and competent on their industry work placements.

Awareness of professional roles, law, public affairs and the regulatory responsibilities of journalists is taught, along with a critical understanding of the political and commercial structures within which the media operate. News skills are refined and there are opportunities to research and over specific areas of interest to showcase a professional versatility across a range of media platforms.
