This BA (Hons) is designed for students who are fascinated by Journalism, Politics and History and whose professional goal is to understand today’s complex world—and explain it to others in different media. This course combines the excellent education in practical journalism that characterizes City’s Journalism degrees with the expertise of leading academics in the University’s International Politics and History Departments. You can do your final project or dissertation in any of the three disciplines. This course will offer those students wishing to report on domestic and international affairs the opportunity to study in greater detail the forces that have shaped the world, and for historians and students of politics to acquire extra skills to become first-rate communicators in whichever professional field they choose to enter. City’s Journalism department enjoys a first-rate reputation among professional journalists because of the high standard of graduates it produces. Successful journalists are interested in ideas. This course will give you the education in Journalism, Politics and History for professional success in a complicated world where politics is often polluted by disinformation.
This three-year degree will give you the skills you need to start a career as a professional journalist, combined with expertise in those areas of politics and history where you choose to specialize. Students have considerable choice and flexibility to choose the politics and / or history electives that most interest them.
