Journalism: Broadcast

Based in the heart of MediaCityUK, you will be taught by professional journalists in a state-of-the-art newsroom equipped with the latest new media technologies and specialised radio and television studio spaces. Broadcast journalism is challenging, demanding and exciting work. This practical course will allow you to experience every aspect of broadcast journalism from writing and directing right down to presenting for live and recorded audiences. From day one, you will be expected to think and act like a journalist working in radio and television. While this course will enable you to work across multiple media platforms, its main focus will encourage you to specialise in the area of broadcast journalism, allowing you to hone your ability to investigate, record, write, edit, present and produce news for radio and television formats. You will have ample opportunity to put your skills into practice through regular news days and practical assessments. This will all be supported by the study of law, ethics and journalism theory. You will also be encouraged to contribute to the student- led broadcast, Quays News, which is supported by industry professionals and guests editors from the BBC and ITV. Graduates have secured journalism jobs at the BBC, ITV, a range of newspapers and online sites as well as finding work in related areas such as public relations.
