Global Journalism at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

Our students see journalism’s bigger picture: freedom of expression, misinformation and ‘fake news’, media ethics and globalisation. If you’re interested in further study of these themes, this is the course for you. Course description This research-based course combines study of themes such as globalisation, misinformation and media freedom with some practical newswriting experience. You’ll cast a critical eye over journalism within an international context, comparing and contrasting media theory and practice around the world. Our academics will also involve you in vital discussions around their pioneering research on media, society and government at a hugely critical moment for freedom of expression. In the first semester, you will be placed front and centre at International Journalism Week - a unique opportunity to engage with dozens of high-profile academics and media practitioners from around the world. This annual programme of lectures, seminars and workshops allows our students to immerse themselves in a huge range of subjects, from war reporting to issues of representation. All students from the department are welcome, but the event is especially tailored to the interests of our MA Global Journalism students. Some of our graduates go on to practice journalism. The majority of our students, however, use this course as the launching pad for a career in academia, and go on to conduct significant research on subjects that lie at the heart of the global media landscape. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
