Broadcast Journalism

Are you excited by the fast-paced world of radio, TV and online news? Do you want to be part of this fiercely competitive and constantly evolving industry? Kick-start your career by studying Broadcast Journalism at our award-winning Centre for Journalism. Broadcast Journalism is a vocational degree that will develop your practical broadcast skills and expose you to the reality of delivering news to a range of audiences. You’ll gain detailed knowledge and understanding of the key historical, political, economic, social and cultural contexts of the news media, as well as developing the vital knowledge of media law required for broadcasting. You’ll learn how to write for the broadcast media, as well as developing transferable multi-media skills relevant for broadcast journalism and other news-related communication fields. Experience is crucial, so you’ll put your broadcast journalism skills into practice by completing professional work placements in each year of your degree. This will include live broadcasting for Bradford Community Radio and TV reporting for our news magazine show Yorkshire Voice. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain additional work experience in your final year with our Professional Learning through Work module, which involves working with an employer on a live, long-term project. Our course is highly valued by employers thanks to its Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) accreditation, which recognises its relevance and responsiveness to the operational demands of the broadcast industry. **Graduate opportunities** You’ll graduate ready to work in a newsroom environment, with broadcast news providers in public and commercial sectors, at production companies and in social media roles. Our recent graduates work in television production companies, as radio presenters and as producers. **Placement opportunities** We are one of only a few UK universities to build professional work placements into every degree. You’ll complete professional work placements during each year of your degree, working in local radio stations including the BBC and commercial radio, regional and local television and production companies.
