This major combines theory with practice, providing you with the knowledge and skills a journalist needs to thrive in today’s multiplatform, globalised, 24/7 media world. You will critically examine the role of journalism and practice of journalists in contemporary society. The major also provides hands-on experience in a newsroom environment, enabling you to develop your reporting and production skills on multiple platforms. January start date - apply on our website.
