English and Journalism

Choose this course if you have a passion for writing; whether your ambition is to write for magazines, newspapers, radio, television or new media or you’re simply interested in improving your communication and writing skills. This exciting degree brings together the study of English, as a medium for communicating our experience, and journalism – the practice of making news and crafting the narratives that become the backdrop to our lives. Covering all aspects of the journalism industry, including print, digital and broadcast, we examine how the world of language and the media influence our lives at home and internationally. You’ll have the opportunity to share experiences and network with international students in prominent universities in France and Spain through online exchanges and blogs, which recently touched on the future of young people in Europe after Brexit. There’ll be plenty of opportunities for hands-on practical experience, producing your own news and current affairs for a variety of print and online media audiences. You can help design and edit our student-run Creative Writing Magazine, CovWords, or support the Student Union’s flagship Coventry Source newspaper and radio station. You can also apply for a work placement, which has led previous students to work for Jaguar Land Rover. Key course benefits; - Opportunity to join the English and Languages Society. - Enhance your critical thinking and judgement, developing some of the communication skills employers are looking for. - Opportunity to become part of the Student’s Union Source Media team contributing to its radio, TV and news platforms. - Option to volunteer in schools to gain experience as a teaching assistant or to present one-day courses to pupils from Years 11-13. - Chance to design and edit our student-run Creative Writing Magazine, Coventry Words, which is now available for sale at Waterstones. - Significant links with a wide variety of employers and media practitioners, such as the BBC, some of whom offer professional experience opportunities. - Opportunity to participate in an exciting range of educational and cultural field trips. A previous example is the opportunity to examine the media and culture of Paris.
