Course Summary

Course Details

Whether you are starting your career in journalism or you are an experienced reporter looking to get to grips with a changing industry, this is your opportunity to sharpen the skills now demanded by employers. You will develop your understanding of the very latest communication tools and technology while you engage with social media, search engine optimisation, crowd sourcing and user-generated content. You will also focus on the traditional media platforms of newspapers, television and radio. This was the first journalism course in England to be taught from within a business school, providing students with access to our extensive contacts in industry. You will be able to take advantage of these links as you report on new developments, expanding companies and high-profile business leaders in a thriving city. You will also benefit from our contacts with an array of media organisations offering invaluable work placements and employment opportunities. Previous students have enjoyed work experience with BBC Newsnight, Reuters and The Independent.

Course Benefits

We have a dedicated employability and placements office to support you and provide you with access to a wide range of vacancies from local, national and international employers. Pre-placement guidance and seminars are available on topics such as CV and letter writing, how to succeed at interview, assessment centres and psychometric tests. You will have the opportunity to showcase your work - whether it be editorial, audio or video. Through our multi-media Student Journalism Website you will also have access to state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, including a dedicated newsroom with the latest Apple Mac Technology, television and radio studios, portable radio studios for outside broadcasts, microphones and high-definition cameras.


Increase your awareness and develop confidence in entering the new media and related industries. You will receive a series of masterclasses from people in the industry and will be given guidance into developing a professional social media profile. A three-week work experience will also form part of the module requirements.
