Journalism and Philosophy

Whose truth do we witness through the media? Have we entered the age of post-truth? What is the responsibility of a journalist? Our BA Journalism and Philosophy encourages you to dig deeper, think critically, enhance your understanding and debate controversial topics. You learn how to engage with a wider audience, gain new perspectives and develop your own journalistic style. Alongside this you will begin to understand the ethical and philosophical issues surrounding journalism, from how social media allows individuals to shape their media consumption to the moral questions surrounding the duty of the journalist.
