We have been teaching and conducting research in journalism since 1978, and our combination of academic and practical work continues to make us one of Scotland’s top institutions in this field. We are top in Scotland for student satisfaction in journalism in the 2016 National Student Survey. Whether Journalism Studies alone or in combination with other subjects, you can expect excellent teaching from staff with a range of skills, from active academic researchers to former and current professionals from media industries. You will also benefit from the Macrobert Arts Centre, an on-campus multi- screen cinema and theatre, and our students often choose to contribute to the campus television station and filmmaking group AirTV, to student newspaper The Brig, and to Air3 Radio. Film and Media teaching combines analysis and practice. You will learn the critical and theoretical skills required to study a range of topics within film, broadcasting, digital media, advertising and political communications. You may select modules devoted to audio and video productions and developing related skills in production, post-production, content development, pitching and research. Journalism Studies teaching also combines analysis and practice. You will develop core skills in contemporary journalism including research, writing, sub-editing, photography, newspaper layout and web design. You will be encouraged to build a portfolio of work to showcase your talents to potential employers, while our work experience module offers the possibility of placements in top media organisations in the region. Journalism Studies have excellent relationships with media organisations and individual media practitioners, who advise and contribute to our degrees. Students studying with us have full access to a modern suite of media facilities for radio and television production and a state-of-the-art newsroom. You will also be given the opportunity to participate in exchange programmes through which you could study for a semester or a year in a location chosen from a list including the United States, Canada, Australia and countries in Europe. Stirling is recognised internationally as a centre of excellence in journalism research and has built up a strong reputation for the teaching of journalistic skills. Working journalists regularly contribute to teaching, while journalism lecturers frequently contribute their expertise to the media. Journalism Studies combines all the elements of a good Arts degree with a marketable, career-orientated specialism. It provides you with a broad academic grounding in the contextual knowledge as well as the critical and practical skills that will enable you to understand, analyse and produce journalism across the range of media – print, broadcast and online. Many Journalism students have established successful careers in the media. These include broadcast and print journalism; television, radio and film production; media management; advertising and public relations; and education. Our graduates have won many awards in a variety of media specialisms, for instance, as BAFTA winners in investigative reporting, programme production and also scriptwriting and whilst studying Print Journalism a Stirling Film & Media graduate won The Scottish Society of Editors Newcomer of the Year Award. Alumni have received awards including Emmy awards for visual effects production in film and TV and Sony Gold Radio Academy awards for BBC Radio 1 documentaries. Students still studying with us are often successful at the Royal Television Society (RTS) Student Awards, including regular wins in the Factual category in recent years, including 2017.
