From breaking news to cultural reviews, sports reporting to in-depth investigations, we'll help you scrutinise, interrogate and report on the issues that really matter.
This degree is geared towards inquiring minds and creative thinkers seeking a career in journalism and the creative media industries. Throughout the programme, we'll encourage you to carve out your own creative identity as you express yourself through a variety of media and genres - including print, broadcast and digital publishing.
You'll start with the core skills of interviewing and reporting, before going on to look at specialist areas like media law and ethics, magazine journalism, editing and production. You'll also get the chance to work on live events and learn how to cover breaking news - all under the pressure of tight deadlines.
In your third year you'll be able to focus on your own particular interests, such as sports and music journalism. You'll also create a portfolio of original journalism, rooted in the real world - real people, real issues, real events.
Throughout it all, you'll have access to the multimedia newsroom, TV studio and radio production facilities, getting you up to speed with all the latest technology. So, by the time you're finished, you'll have acquired the wide range of skills necessary to work in today's multiplatform digital environments.
You may also have the opportunity to spend an extra year expanding your horizons, either studying with one of our partner universities overseas, or working on a placement with an organisation.
