Digital Journalism

In the age of mobile technology, anyone can use their phone to take pictures and video and send their stories across the globe as soon as they happen, but it is the quality of the material that matters. You will develop the skills and confidence to spot a story and think about the different ways it could be told, whether using photgraphy, sound or the written word. You will learn the art of taking a striking picture, the techniques for writing editorial content and how to use industry-standard editing software. You will gain the ability to work in a collaborative environment through group projects, including an online magazine. For each edition you will take on a new role, learning the varied skills involved in producing a publication. We will encourage you to keep the audience for your stories at the forefront of your mind and teach you how to tailor your content for a particular readership. We will keep you up to date with advances in digital journalism to ensure your learning is current and fully prepares you for the future. You will learn about how media has shifted from print to online and assess the impact this is having on journalism, giving you the knowledge and ability to adapt to these changes. **EDITING FACILITIES** We'll provide you with up-to-date, industry-standard software, including editing software and Adobe Cloud. **SOUND RECORDING STUDIOS** You will have access to 10 recording studios complete with control rooms, live areas, instruments, amps, mixing facilities and editing suites.
