Media and Journalism (with Foundation Year)

BA(Hons) Media and Journalism 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. Learn from experienced journalists, media producers and academic researchers and undertake self-directed project work in a range of digital media, delivered to specific briefs and tight deadlines. Explore the hands-on craft of traditional reporting and produce compelling, well-researched stories using blogs, content marketing and social media to engage diverse audiences. Gain 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 partners contribute to live briefs, masterclasses and research projects, and offer volunteering and work experience. Benefit from regular guest lectures and take on placements at organisations like the BBC, 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. Our graduates go on to careers in TV, radio, print and digital journalism, web design, publishing, media production, marketing and public relations, advertising and copywriting, audience research and media criticism.
