This one year Certificate of Higher Education in Journalism is an exciting and engaging programme of study which will allow you to work with your peers and professional journalists to create engaging journalism content on a variety of topics. Are you interested in sports journalism, news, or lifestyle content? This course will help you explore what it means to be a journalist today and why high journalistic standards are more important than ever. In a world where a smartphone is all you need to break a story, what sets the good and the great apart? How do you start? How do you get professional experience? You will learn the skills and attributes you need to succeed in this rapidly changing sector and investigate the societal impact this crucial industry has on us all. There are big questions to open up and answer: How does an event become news? How do you reconcile the right to privacy with the importance of the freedom of the press? Where does the truth lie in a world of fake news and citizen journalism? This is a course for the bold, the brave and the curious: sharp, passionate, questioning minds who’ll shape our perspectives tomorrow. Your UA92 degree goes far beyond the traditional academic experience. UA92 provides you with more than just a degree, we aim to prepare you for life. Through the course you will study a series of subject modules but will also undertake our credit bearing character and personal development curriculum modules, based on an industry set brief, which will help you to situate your subject knowledge and personal skills in industry.
