Course summary

Why Magazine Journalism and Production?

Our Magazine Journalism and Production degree develops your abilities in design, marketing and business strategy, and equips you with skills such as writing and video production. Covering both print and digital production, you’ll explore lifestyle, fashion, music and sports magazines, as well as newspaper supplements and specialist publications. With opportunities to gain experience on placements with key magazine publishers, such as Immediate Media (home to over 60 titles such as ‘Radio Times’ and ‘Good Food’), our graduates stand out from the competition. Drawing on the expertise of experienced, practising magazine and media professionals, you’ll build your understanding of the very latest industry innovations and trends. There’s even the chance to learn from high-profile guest lectures, including at our annual Media Festival, with past visitors including former editors of ‘Heat’ magazine and ‘NME’. You’ll also benefit from use of the latest professional software in our state-of-the-art newsrooms and dedicated Magazine Journalism and Production studio.
