Our MA in Magazine Journalism prepares you for a successful career in all aspects of magazine media. From glossy monthlies and quirky independent quarterlies to weekly titles for business people, customer magazines for brands, online magazines, websites, social media and freelancing. The MA in Magazine Journalism is an intensive, practical year-long course and is accredited by the Professional Publishers Association (PPA). The course equips you with the skills and knowledge to embrace all the multimedia platforms a modern magazine brand uses, focused on producing print, online, mobile and social media content. You will learn how to write news, interviews, features and produce this content effectively across different content platforms. You will also be trained in key editing processes and the latest digital skills, producing photography, audio, video content and podcasts as well as page layouts.

We offer realistic learning experiences that mirror those you’ll face in your career, including the opportunity to pitch your work clearly and confidently and produce a complete magazine. We’re not looking for ready-made journalists, but you will need to demonstrate an interest in current affairs and the magazine industry.
