English and Multimedia Journalism - Manchester Metropolitan University

English and journalism have long been natural bedfellows. Today, with the multimedia element, our joint honours puts a modern spin on the most enduring of partnerships. The connection between English and journalism is as old as the oldest news publications. This exciting degree offers the chance to bring the former together with an up-to-the-minute, multimedia version of the latter, reflecting the demands of the modern media environment. Today’s journalists are expected to operate across broadcast, print and online networks. With a broad range of units, we’ll give you all the skills you need to compete in this fast-moving world. You’ll learn from accomplished reporters and editors, drawing on extensive newsroom-experience to give you industry-relevant understanding and insights. You’ll also build a set of complementary skills through our range of English units, including critical and cultural theories and textual analysis. Then when you get to your final year, you’ll have the chance to put those skills into practice – by tackling a substantial piece of work, whether a portfolio of journalism or an extended piece of critical writing. Manchester has one of the biggest digital and creative sectors in the UK. With MediaCityUK, home to the BBC and ITV, it’s an ideal place for an ambitious journalist to build a network, gain experience and boost your career prospects.
