About Journalism at University of Sheffield

News reporting requires expertise in creating and publishing digital content, alongside a solid grasp of traditional skills and knowledge. Take this degree and you'll develop both. Learn in our online newsrooms and out in the city during our production newsdays. You'll also work with a team to publish your stories on the Sheffield Wire - a real, public-facing news website and social media channels.

You'll apply your learning in news writing, web publishing, shorthand, video, media law and ethics to hunt down and write up stories to meet real-time deadlines with your team.

As well as the core reporting skills required by employers, you'll also be exposed to innovative journalism techniques, which will put you a step ahead when it comes to landing your first job.

Our course is accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and is renowned within the industry as one of the best in the UK. We'll give you access to international, national and regional news providers on a myriad of platforms during both teaching time and placements. 

Our alumni are intelligent and successful journalists who are excellent at both traditional newswriting and digital mobile journalism.
