Broadcast Journalism

Perhaps you see yourself working in TV, or you’re hoping to go on to work in journalism on the radio or online. Whether you want to work in front of the camera or behind the scenes, we could help you get closer to your dream career. To show employers what you’re capable of, it’s no use just studying the theory. We’re going to give you the chance to get hands-on right from the start, helping you build the skills you need to stand apart in this exciting industry. That’s why we have an impressive range of equipment for you to experiment with, including TV and radio studios, professional cameras and software, and smartphones for mobile recording. We’ll give you the chance to learn all aspects of TV, radio and online journalism, covering everything from writing basic scripts to directing TV features and presenting your own radio shows. The media is constantly changing, so we stay on top of all the latest developments. We’ll cover social media and blogs as well as how to manage a digital newsroom. Your course also includes modules that take a more academic look at the media itself, including its changing role in our society. We’ll cover the issues that surround the various genres of broadcasting, as well as politics, media law and ethics. The course is accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC), the industry’s leading professional body. In your third year you’ll have the chance to go on a placement for three weeks or more, working with an external media company. Whether you’re working on a TV channel or a radio station, you’ll get the chance to see how stories are broadcast in a professional context. Your studies will culminate in full digital journalism days, when you’ll be asked to help produce news content to real-world deadlines across TV, radio and online.
