This degree is aimed at students who want to study Journalism and Media, including: television and radio journalism; print journalism; digital journalism; media practice; public relations; and the history, development and ethics of journalism. The emphasis of the course is on balancing practical and academic aspects. This course will equip you with a solid grounding in the principles of journalism, as well as the technical and practical skills required to make you a sought-after professional in this field. The degree offers a balance of practical and analytical tasks. Practical Journalism modules concentrate on developing the student’s ability to produce journalistic pieces for print, television, radio and the web. Practical modules will be assessed both on practical output and on the individual’s ability to reflect critically on their practice. Other modules are assessed by exam and assignment and frequently also offer the opportunity to submit practical work as an element of assessment. As you progress through the degree, much of your study will be done in small teaching groups with an emphasis on learning both group work skills and the ability to carry a piece of work through yourself from initial concept to completion.
