Journalism: Multimedia

Journalism has entered a new digital age but at its core remains the craft of investigating and reporting events and issues. This course provides a fusion of traditional practice and new, emerging methods that are shaping the future of journalism. Taught by professional journalists, you will be encouraged to experiment across a range of platforms in order to deliver cutting edge and dynamic news content. This practice led course will also afford you the opportunity to regularly work with the latest new media technologies specified by industry, in a brand new state-of-the-art newsroom at the centre of MediaCityUK. You will learn how to investigate, record, write, edit, present and produce news for online, print, radio and television, with the option to specialise in your preferred area in the final year. You will also be encouraged to work on the student-led broadcast, Quays News, which is supported by industry and guest editors from the BBC and ITV. We aim to produce graduates capable of hitting the ground running as competent journalists, with professional multimedia skills. 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.
