BA (Hons) Magazine Journalism and Publishing is a unique course that combines the practical and technical skills of journalism, editing and production with a contextual understanding of the business of publishing. This wide-ranging course explores media studies, journalism, law, production and business management, and will give you the creative, analytical and transferable skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly dynamic, evolving media world. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).

What can you expect?

There are two main strands to the course: editorial and publishing.

Editorial is practice based and focuses on the creation of magazine content and the curation of its narratives. You will learn the editorial and production skills necessary to plan, commission and produce both print and digital magazines. You will do this by working on College publications and by having the opportunity to generate your own original publishing projects.

In Publishing, you will analyse markets and readerships. You'll develop strong creative media management and entrepreneurial skills that are directed to launching magazines or working collaboratively to create a branded media project.

You’ll develop good research, communication and analytical skills that are important to the modern media environment and will have the opportunity to undertake an industry placement to contextualise this learning.

The two strands combine to offer a broad approach to the study of journalism and publishing. These will enable you to develop a toolkit of transferable skills, crucial for practitioners working in the new multi-platform environment.
