Journalism Studies

Journalism at Sheffield produces graduates who are ready for the challenges of the job. This means that from day one you will find yourself in what feels like a real working environment, with newsrooms and studios for radio, television, print and web. You will practise journalism every day, covering your own patch in the city. One day you could be making a documentary, the next you might be reporting from a courtroom. The degree is accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and the Professional Publishing Association. Our teaching staff are professionals with years of experience in TV, radio and print. We have close links with local and national media, which means lots of opportunities for work experience. And professionals visit the department all the time to meet students and give talks. A journalism degree from Sheffield is highly regarded. Graduates often begin their careers as reporters for local newspapers or radio. Many of them go on to work at national or international level as editors and in other roles. Some specialise in social media or video production. Employers include the BBC, Sky Sports, Al Jazeera and the Wall Street Journal.
