You will gain a wide range of journalistic skills and hands-on experience as part of this course. You’ll learn to write in a variety of styles and for different audiences as well as gaining a working knowledge of how communication works and the nature of the British media. In your first year you will study Journalism and Media Cultures equally, you can then choose to drop one in your second year and take the other forward as a minor field. Our law modules are taught through a participative and interactive environment. Whether you are interested in becoming a legal practitioner or simply interested in the law in a more general context, you will develop a core set of skills that will develop your employability and provide valuable insights. Joint Honours students studying the Law field as a major subject will gain a law qualifying degree and will be exempt from the first stage of legal professional examinations.
