Make us your first choice if you are determined to have the best possible start in an exciting career in journalism. From the first day of the course, you will be encouraged to think like a journalist - to be inquisitive, resourceful, sceptical and persistent in your quest. While developing these essential skills, you will study the history of journalism, its role in society and the legal and ethical framework within which journalists work. This course works to real deadlines, so TV and radio work is assessed live, publications are put together to print deadlines and professional meetings take place as they would in industry. Due to the fact this is such a well-established course, there is a wealth of experience and knowledge available - UCLan is very well respected for its journalism course and many graduates get jobs in the careers they want. Graduates work for BBC Radio, Television and Interactive, Sky TV, independent radio and television, national and regional newspapers, magazines and in the newly-emerging creative digital media industries. Successful alumni are invited back in to talk to students to share their experiences, and guest speakers deliver presentations talking about pertinent issues such as the future of print journalism, and social media and journalism.
