This programme has been developed in line with the needs of the media and communications industry. It will provide you with the broad range of skills required in the rapidly-changing world of journalism. You will learn traditional journalistic skills in news gathering, writing and editing, as well as creating and editing digital content including photography, video, sound and web design. You will have the opportunity to produce news packages for TV, radio and web as well as writing for print. Apart from news journalism, you may decide to follow specific interests such as sports or music journalism. Your practical work will be backed up by an understanding of the social, cultural and political context in which you are working, and there is an emphasis on recognising and developing the qualities required for employment and selfemployment. Visits from industry professionals, opportunities for work experience, collaborations with media organisations and live projects will provide you with the material to put together a high quality professional portfolio by the end of the course.
