Journalism is something that most people encounter everyday. Whether this is on the TV through a news broadcast, online media outlets, or print media such as newspapers and magazines, the products of journalism are present in most places. As a journalist, you will investigate and report events, issues and trends, informing the general public. In recent years, journalism has evolved from solely using traditional media, to utilising modern media such social media.

An undergraduate degree in journalism will give you an insight into the discipline, covering topics like writing, communication, reporting, ethics and media. You will also be provided with the opportunities to understand how your reporting will impact the delivery and therefore interpretation of news stories, and how news is impacted by the world around us.

Your degree will be delivered through a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions. You may also be required to participate in a placement module, which will allow you to experience working in a professional journalism environment.
