Course Summary

Our students see journalism’s bigger picture: freedom of expression, ‘fake news’, media ethics and globalisation, as well as digital reporting techniques. That’s why they become great journalists, communications experts and media researchers.

Course description

This far-reaching journalism degree combines research on media practice and freedom around the world with some practical newswriting experience and events. Join up and you’ll look at journalism within the context of globalisation, comparing and contrasting media practice around the world, immersed in vital discussions around the relationship between media, society and government – at a hugely critical moment for freedom of expression. Our annual International Journalism Week is a focal point, with high-level discussions led by media professionals, researchers and campaigners from around the world.
