Course summary

Stories. They’re what our world is made of. And in the digital age, there are more ways of sharing those stories than ever before. On this multimedia journalism degree course, you’ll learn not just how to find, research and write your story, but how to communicate it through a wide range of digital platforms across web, mobile, social media, video, audio and print. What’s more, you’ll have the chance to explore a range of specialisms, including sports reporting, music journalism and magazine journalism to name just three. So, what’s your story? Multimedia journalism is challenging, demanding and exciting work. This BJTC-accredited course is taught by leading experts in the field, providing you with the practical experience you need to be a professional journalist – from liv blogging and reporting to podcasting and feature writing. (No. Very few multimedia students do any presenting – a lot of them take multimedia particularly because they don’t want to be in front of camera.) You’ll also be learning in a state-of-the-art newsroom equipped with the latest new media technologies, as well as specialised radio and television studio spaces. You will be given plenty of opportunities to put your skills into practice through regular production days and practical assessments. Alongside this, you’ll be learning about the law, ethics and theory that are involved in journalism. Want to put your skills to the test? You’ll have the chance to contribute to the student-led website SalfordNow and to Quays News which are supported by industry professionals and guest editors from the BBC and ITV.
