About the course
This is a course for our times, responding to the challenges of globalization. The degree will challenge those from the UK and beyond to think past their national perspectives. To get the full story you need to transcend geographical borders and traditional divisions.
Today’s big stories are complex, simultaneously political, economic, hyper-local and global. You will learn about transnational organisations, critique theories relating to the role of the media and globalisation and practice journalism across various media platforms.
The University of Bedfordshire’s journalism team proposed and organised, through the Broadcast Journalism Training Council, the collaboration of 13 universities reporting the general election of 2017. Bedfordshire students from across our journalism courses, from first years to postgraduate students, planned, produced and presented the overnight programme as well as joining students from other universities reporting from the counts. See the team in action here on this BJTC video.
