Why Journalism? Our dual-accredited Journalism degree allows you to explore all aspects of multimedia journalism, from writing and presenting, shooting and editing video, to creating audio output such as podcasts. You’ll learn fundamental principles of journalism practice as well as media law and ethics, while gaining essential practical skills and building a professional portfolio of work. With opportunities for work experience on placements with key news outlets such as ‘The Times’, BBC Breakfast and Sky News, our graduates stand out from the competition. You’ll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers, who have worked for the likes of the BBC, ITV, Vice, ‘New Statesman’, ‘The Times’ and ‘Guardian’.
