About the course

Are you a budding journalist keen to acquire practical journalistic skills? Do you want to gain a sophisticated understanding of the rapidly changing fields of journalism and media? In this course, you will combine the academic analysis of media with practical teaching from experienced industry professionals.

The BA Journalism and Media offers a unique multidisciplinary approach, challenging you to develop an understanding of the political, historical, cultural and social contexts in which journalists operate. This academic emphasis is complemented by solid practical modules, in which you will learn how to write, create and curate across a range of journalistic specialisations, genres and platforms - from the more traditional to the digital.

This is your opportunity to gain an independent, university-level qualification focused on strategic and high-end skills. Not only will you gain practical knowledge of the journalism field, but also the cutting-edge insights needed to build, manage and navigate a career within today's fast-changing media.

This course is also available for part-time evening study over 4 years and part-time evening study over 6 years.
