Journalism and Public Relations

BA(Hons) Journalism and Public Relations is based at UWE Bristol's Frenchay Campus in the foundation year, and at Bower Ashton Studios, part of our City Campus, from year one onwards.

Gain skills in writing, marketing communications and media strategy across print, screen and internet platforms and become highly employable in a range of communications industries. Develop an in-depth understanding of the political, economic and media contexts in which today's media are produced and consumed. Find out how to turn your skills into a rewarding, well-paid career. Our strong industry links with Bristol's cultural scene ensures regular input from journalists and PR professionals. Benefit from regular guest lectures and take on live briefs and work placements at organisations like the BBC, the Bristol Post and Bristol City Council. Showcase your work to talent scouts and potential employers at the final year Creative Industries Degree Show and graduate with an impressive portfolio of work. Your advanced communications skills will equip you for a career in an expanding sector.
