Multimedia Journalism (Including Year Abroad) - University of Essex

Become a journalist with the story-getting and story-telling skills to flourish in the 2020s. Our BA Multimedia Journalism degree has been designed with the future needs of this rapidly changing industry at its heart, informing our curriculum, programme design, facilities and staffing. As a student at the UK’s leading social science institution and a pioneer of literature and writing, you are uniquely placed to acquire a deeper understanding of the world you report on than your job market competitors as well as to develop your own powerful journalistic style. Our course equips you with the skills to thrive in today’s multimedia journalism environment. We live in a connected world with a wealth of information just a few clicks away. We have instant access to whatever news we want, whenever and wherever we want it. We don’t have to wait for the newspaper to hit the streets or for the evening news bulletin. Anyone with a smartphone can be a reporter, able to record, edit and publish whatever they like. The challenge for the professional journalist in the digital age is to provide news and information that can be trusted, meeting the demands created by new technology and changing habits without sacrificing core professional values. Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable.
