Journalism Studies at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

As part of your course, you'll practise journalism for real, covering your own patch in the city. Every assignment will present a different challenge. You could be on location filming for a documentary. You may be reporting from a courtroom on the details of a criminal prosecution. Another day could find you interviewing a politician or a sports star. The work you complete with us will help to build up your portfolio and CV. Our unparalleled connections in the media industry can help to open up a huge range of placement opportunities, and we offer you the option to take a placement year to help gain vital industry experience and get ahead of the competition before graduation day. Many of our graduates go on to specialise in areas such as TV news, sports reporting or political journalism. Before they find their niche, we believe that our trainee journalists need to become fantastic reporters, editors, commentators and producers. This course will allow you to perfect the full range of skills you need as a contemporary media professional, including knowing the difference between 'good' and 'bad' journalism; practising within the bounds of media law and ethics; and how to spot and tell great stories in print, television, radio and online. As a hands-on department at a prestigious Russell Group university, we're uniquely placed to offer you the best of both worlds. Our staff are award-winning editors and authors, active journalists and world-leaders in media and communications research. During your time with us, you'll receive the perfect balance of practical know-how and theoretical knowledge on the hottest issues within industry. Join us and follow in the footsteps of alumni who are working for the BBC, Press Association, Bloomberg, The Guardian and countless other media organisations all over the world. Our BA Journalism Studies course is currently accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Professional Publishers Association.
