About Journalism Studies at University of Sheffield

Good journalists need traditional skills like spotting big stories and excellent newswriting and digital skills like video editing and social media. Our staff have decades of journalistic experience and teach all these techniques expertly.

As part of your course, you'll practise journalism for real, covering your own patch in the city. Every assignment will present a different challenge. You could be on location filming for a documentary. You may be reporting from a courtroom on the details of a criminal prosecution. Another day could find you interviewing a politician or a sports star.

Your work experience will build up your portfolio of work and CV. Our many connections in the media industry help to open up a huge range of work experience opportunities.

They do this because the best journalists aren't just good at working a camera and note-taking in shorthand. The best journalists understand the difference between good and bad journalism. They grasp the responsibilities of their profession and its rich history. They know that journalism is about right and wrong, war and peace, liberty and democracy. It's about the life stories of people, societies, and entire continents.

And as a prestigious Russell Group university, where teaching is based on the highest-quality research, our staff are living, breathing and teaching these ideas.

Join us and follow recent graduates who are working for the BBC, Press Association, Bloomberg, The Guardian and media all over the world.

Our BA Journalism Studies course is currently accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Professional Publishers Association.
