About Music Journalism at University for the Creative Arts (UCA)

Our BA (Hons) Music Journalism course is designed to transform music lovers into confident media professionals.

With its emphasis on multi-platform content creation, the course encourages you to find innovative ways of sourcing, creating and publishing material across print, online, video and radio.

As a budding music journalist, you’ll learn how to create engaging content – features, news, reviews, blog posts, investigative pieces, radio packages, podcasts, films and videos – for relevant platforms, as well as publishing across social media.

We'll also teach you important knowledge about the music business, giving you vital skills in self-promotion, networking and communication.

From day one, you’ll be developing a rich and diverse portfolio of work that will help to put you in a strong position when you graduate.

Epsom’s close proximity to London means that the UK’s largest media companies are on your doorstep. From Kerrang! and NME to Mojo and The Guardian, we have long-established links with some of the most high-profile publications in the industry.

With access to dedicated studio space, you’ll be guided through how to use industry-standard software, such as Adobe’s Creative Suite, as well as how to put journalistic theory into practice.

You’ll also benefit from working in a campus community of fellow creatives from the fields of music promotion, media, film, design and fashion.

Taught by an experienced team of professional journalists and visiting lecturers, our graduates have gone on to forge exciting careers in print, online, TV and radio, including at NME, Kerrang!, Vice, Clash, Polydor, Radio 1,, Virgin Records, Uncut Magazine and Absolute Radio.
