About Television Journalism at City, University of London

MA Television Journalism has an outstanding reputation in, and unparalleled contact with, the professional world - each Wednesday students work in the journalism industry.

With weekly newsdays, students learn practical multimedia skills: finding, researching, writing, newsgathering, interviewing, presenting, reporting, self-shooting, and editing content, all supported by core journalism principles (Media Law, Journalism Ethics, Data Journalism and Political Headlines).

Students make half-hour documentaries in teams of three in the final term. These have won such awards as Guardian Young Journalists of the Year, BJTC documentary award, and been re-worked for broadcast on BBC Newsnight.

30 students work in teaching groups of 15 ensuring daily personal contact with tutors including former BBC/ITV self-shooting producer-director Sally Webb; ABC news producer Mike Trew; investigative journalist Paul Lashmar; Reuters and Sky News journalist George Negas; BBC World Service's Dr Abdullahi Tasiu Abubakar; former Reuters editor Lloyd Watson and former editor of The Andrew Marr Show Professor Barney Jones.
