Our three-year course offers the complete journalistic education, covering a broad spectrum of subjects.

Sometimes you may find yourself as the working journalist, maybe on one of our own student publications or perhaps on a work placement assignment at a national media organisation.

At other times, you’ll be the entrepreneur, devising original stories and formulating ideas with business potential before pitching them to commissioning editors.

Or you could be the academic, researching subjects such as the history of journalism, its new role in society, media law, ethics and regulation.

You can choose ‘portfolio’ modules from which you gain credits towards your degree by getting your journalistic work published.

For your major project work, you can work on the development of a new publication, from the idea stage all the way through to its production - and, of course, the launch party! Or, instead, you could originate and complete a major academic research project of your choice.
