Course summary

Multimedia Journalism

OVERVIEW

This multi-disciplinary course combines practical training in radio, TV, newspaper, magazine and online journalism with academic study and is the perfect foundation for a career in journalism. Your studies will be reinforced by opportunities to get involved with regular student publications and websites, consolidating what you have learned through your course.

Course Details

Through this course you will develop a critical understanding of the professional skills you will need as a journalist, in a world where communication technologies play an increasingly central role.

We focus on the practical skills that you will need to get a working knowledge of the media industry. You will produce magazines, news blogs and radio and TV packages, as well as running your own blog site, offering the opportunity to showcase your work. As well as the study of print, online and broadcast journalism practices, the course is underpinned by modules exploring and honing writing techniques and skills.

Studying Multimedia Journalism as a Joint honours degree allows you to study another subject alongside. You can study them both equally, or focus on one more than the other, creating a major/minor split.

History

OVERVIEW

Our History degree mixes academic study with field trips and opportunities to go on placements with local museums, heritage organisations and other relevant employers. You will be studying in an environment that is supportive, responsive, and above all friendly.

Course Details

This course offers innovative, research-driven topics on British, European and World history, covering all periods from the 13th Century through to the 21st Century. All of our tutors are practising historians who are enthusiastic about their work and publish regularly as experts in their fields. Take a look at the blogs written by staff and students in the History Division.

The team of tutors is big enough to offer a variety of courses, but small enough to give you a close-knit learning environment. You will know your tutors personally and see them regularly and there will always be someone on hand to help or offer academic support. In addition to your personal tutorials, there are also informal support structures in place from your module and course tutors.

Studying History as a joint honours degree, combined with another subject, gives you the opportunity to pull together your varied interests and apply what you learn across both subject areas.
