This course is suitable for students from any degree background with an interest in current affairs.

Students will have a keen interest in the media, specifically in news and/or features in print and/or online journalism.

The course combines professional skills training in reporting, interviewing, writing, editing, research and newspaper production (in print and online) with a concern for professional standards and critical and ethical reflection.

Many students undertake work placements in their chosen field, taking advantage of our location, usually arranging them for the winter and/or spring break.

The department includes former BBC politics editor Professor Suzanne Franks; the former Guardian Media Editor Professor Jane Martinson, investigative journalist Dr Paul Lashmar; and award-winning Freedom of Information expert, Heather Brooke.

We have been running Journalism courses at City since 1976. In the years since, over 5,000 students have graduated and are now working in the media around the world.
