News reporting takes expertise in creating and publishing digital content alongside a solid grasp of traditional skills and knowledge. Take this degree and you'll develop both - in our online newsrooms and out on the streets of the city during our production newsdays, when you'll work with a team to publish your stories on a real, public-facing news website and social media channel.
You'll use your learning in newswriting, web publishing, shorthand, video, media law and ethics to hunt down and write up stories to meet real-time deadlines with your team.
Our alumni are intelligent and successful journalists who are excellent at both traditional newswriting and digital mobile journalism.
