Course overview

MA Journalism: Audio/Video Journalism has a strong industry focus and will support you to develop your journalistic skills. As a multimedia course, we cover multiplatform journalism for broadcast, podcast, online and social media

What to expect

  • Guided by tutors with professional and multi-platform experience gained at national newspapers, digital channels, and broadcasters such as the BBC and Sky, you'll develop key, practical journalistic skills, and learn how to apply them to your particular area of interest.
  • You'll receive specific teaching in your chosen pathway, but you’ll come together as a larger group at key moments in the course – for example, to work collaboratively with other students on our Artefact multiplatform brand comprising a print magazine, website, social media channels and an audio/visual platform.
  • You’ll produce an individual, substantial piece or portfolio of journalism in a medium or media of your choice.
  • With a commitment to practice as a basis for developing skills, our MA Journalism course reflects the contemporary environment of multi-platform journalism. Whichever pathway you choose to study, you’ll be supported to produce work in a range of styles and genres while building your employability.
