It examines the forms, practices, institutions and audiences of newspaper, radio, television and online news reporting in relation to broader social issues (both in the UK and internationally). Students conduct academic research and acquire practical reporting skills, and in the process gain advanced analytic and communication skills related to a range of careers in factual media, communications and cultural industries, and research. The programme has strong links with the MediaWise Trust and other media organisations based in Britain and abroad, including South East Asia.
