Overview

Passionate about PR and communications? Want to boost your employment prospects? Southampton Solent’s MA PR & Multimedia Communications programme is designed to help graduates build on traditional paradigms of public relations, exploring critically how the PR industry relates to advertising, marketing and journalism.

With an emphasis on the emergence of ‘peer-to-peer’ communications on digital platforms, this course can help improve the employability of both recent graduates and existing practitioners.

- The course curriculum emphasises content creation and management across paid, owned, earned and shared platforms.
- Students study alongside industry experts with a wealth of first-hand insight to share.
- The course is delivered through interactive seminars. These small group sessions allow for open discussion and regular feedback.
- Students will learn how to commission work and manage relationships with advertising, marketing and brand journalism specialists.
- Work placements and freelance projects are a core part of the curriculum, helping to ensure that students graduate with a range of relevant workplace experience.
- Small class sizes allow for flexibility in the curriculum, helping students to tailor the course to their own interests.
- Assignments can be adapted to suit each student’s unique career ambitions or, if they are working, their employer’s needs.
- Students benefit from a range of guest speakers and practical events including a crisis simulation, an ‘eCampaign’ in a day, and participation in industry events.

The industry -

Modern PR practitioners have to grapple with communication that knows no boundaries. The stakeholder relations manager, the corporate journalist, the digital promoter, the brand content manager - these are the jobs of the future, and the graduates filling these posts will need to know how to do their public relations in an integrated way.

The corporate narrative now has to compete with the user generated content. Traditional news and feature journalism is being pushed aside by citizen journalism and brand journalism, causing PR practitioners to re-think their influencer strategies. Advertisers who were once focused on campaigns in print media are now using rich online content, while native advertising is blurring the lines between public relations and advertising. Those who can surf the waves of this multifaceted world will be the most effective (employable) strategic communicators.

The programme -

As the roles of digital newsroom manager, multimedia advertiser, marketing professional, and corporate PR continue to converge, it is increasingly important that students gain first-hand experience of these functions. With opportunities for networking, live client briefs and portfolio development all built into the course, graduates leave Southampton Solent with a wealth of industry relevant experience to show potential employers.

The ‘Professional Development’ unit gives students work-placement and freelance opportunities, enhancing their professional skillset. Students will also be able to pitch for paid work at Solent Creatives, who specialise in connecting students with businesses who need creative support. These projects can help students to strengthen their portfolio of professional work. For full details of each individual unit, please see the ‘course content’ tab.

Learners are encouraged to carry out additional work experience alongside their regular studies. The course team’s close links with industry have helped past students to negotiate placements at top local and national agencies.

As one of the country’s top creative universities (Which? University Student Survey, 2014), Southampton Solent is proud to offer students a range of high-end media facilities. Students also have the opportunity to access an extensive media loans service, where they can borrow high-end video production and photography equipment.

The course concludes with a major project or dissertation. This is another opportunity for students to specialise their knowledge, conducting in-depth research into an area that complements their unique career ambitions.

Course Content

Units include:

- PR in a Multimedia World (30 credits) - this unit covers how the theory and practice of PR changes as communication moves across paid, owned, shared and earned media. Paradigm shifts from traditional PR approaches are considered in the context of actual PR campaigns currently running.
- Multimedia Campaign Planning (30 credits) - students get the opportunity to develop and implement a number of campaign activities across a wide variety of platforms, testing their ability to integrate paid, owned, shared and earned media in a PR campaign.
- Media Measurement & Evaluation (15 credits) - this unit introduces students to the measurement techniques applied in advertising, marketing, promotion and PR sectors, including the evolution of RoE (return on engagement).
- Research Methods (15 credits) - this unit raises the students’ research skills to master’s level and includes SPSS software and other methodologies that are relevant to their particular areas of interest. This is a shared unit.
- Professional Development (30 credits) - this unit positions the MA programme in terms of the student’s career aspiration, identifying skill sets and development needs in a personal development programme. This forms the basis of a freelance/workplace project and informs the student’s choice of dissertation topic.
- Major Project/Dissertation (60 credits) - the culmination of this MA programme. Theory and practice learned in the previous units inform a final research project.

Teaching, learning and assessment -

Work experience:

One unit (Professional Practice) requires a work placement or freelance project to be completed. Students are encouraged to source their own client (through Solent Creatives) or to find a work placement that is appropriate to their career ambitions. The course team will be available to provide support and guidance as necessary.

The placements and projects vary in length, depending on client needs. The minimum required is a two week placement, but on average the client projects last much longer.

Assessment:

Assessment methods include essays, practical portfolios, reflective reports, and campaign outputs. The major project/dissertation unit includes a presentation during the early stages of development. ‘PR in a Multimedia World’ includes an exam.

Our facilities -

We have a fully equipped IT centre with both PC and Mac computers. These feature industry-standard image manipulation, video and audio editing software. Access to camera equipment and professional recording devices for podcast and video creation is highly likely, and access to photographic equipment is always available.

Web-based learning -

Solent’s virtual learning environment (VLE) provides quick online access to assignments, lecture notes, suggested reading and other course information. The unit materials are posted on the VLE and students are expected to have reviewed them prior to attending class. The materials include journal articles, videos and web-based resources.

The industry -

Whether you want to work in the social support and welfare sector, in the justice system or with relevant charities - your understanding of criminology and criminal justice will give you the opportunity to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

This is an essential degree for many careers in these sectors, but can also help with a range of roles in other industries. These include various applied and research-based roles that focus on helping people with social or personal issues and supporting the rehabilitation of offenders.

The programme -

Students on Southampton Solent University’s postgraduate criminology and criminal justice programme study the core curriculum alongside a choice of two specialist units. This chance to specialise is important, helping students to orient their knowledge towards specific roles in the criminal justice sector.

This programme also encourages students to develop a range of transferable interpersonal and verbal communication skills through presentations, role-plays, debates, interviews and group work. These competencies are valued in a wide range of industries.

To find out more about the content of each specific unit, please see the ‘course content’ tab.
Enrichment activities and learning opportunities are available alongside the core curriculum, giving students the chance to learn from guest speakers, visit criminal justice organisations and network at industry events. These additional activities help to provide detailed insights into the criminal justice system and the careers it offers. Past speakers have come from the police, courts, prisons, probation services, youth justice services and cyber security firms.

The course team themselves have had extensive experience of the criminal justice system and its related disciplines, providing students with unique personal insights. The ties they have with the professional world have helped past students secure volunteer placements, temporary paid work, work shadowing weeks and internships.

The Returning and Supply Teachers course is for you if you’re a qualified teacher looking to update your existing teaching qualification. Read more
The Returning and Supply Teachers course is for you if you’re a qualified teacher looking to update your existing teaching qualification. The University of South Wales is one of just a few universities to provide such a course which meets the requirements for all teachers who have been out of the profession for five years.

It will prepare you for a return to teaching in a primary school, or for a move from secondary to primary school teaching. If you’re in regular supply work and looking to obtain a long-term or permanent teaching appointment this course may also be beneficial.

The Returning and Supply Teachers University Certificate is not a conversion course, but is designed to further your professional development, and help with new opportunities. The course will give you the confidence to apply for teaching posts with the knowledge that you will be able to speak with recent and relevant experience.

On the course you will study with other qualified teachers and will review, enhance and consolidate your skills, knowledge and understanding of successful practice in primary education. You’ll benefit from the expertise of the course team, and have the opportunity to develop your confidence as a professional practitioner. You will also become familiar with recent developments in education systems, methods and practices.

See the website http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/1283-university-certificate-returning-and-supply-teachers-course

What you will study

This part-time course centres around spending 15 Wednesdays in university, starting in February. The days in university are varied and include lectures, discussions, practical activities and where appropriate informal tutorials.In addition, you will complete 10 days or equivalent working in schools, in either a voluntarily or paid position.

The course serves to deliver the necessary components for teachers who have been out of teaching for five years or more, to be able to apply to the GTCW to return to the profession. Without some training of this kind teachers who have been out of the profession for this length of time are not able to return. Therefore an already popular course is becoming even more so.

The course covers all National Curriculum subjects in the context of the classroom and will include an emphasis on the Foundation Phase in Wales and its seven areas of learning. Issues of assessment, management and resourcing are discussed as an integral part of these studies, and the course provides an opportunity to explore recent and relevant changes and innovations. It is structured to provide plenty of practical experience supported by the relevant theory.

In addition to attending lectures and placement, you will benefit from professional guidance and support on making job applications, writing a curriculum vitae and interview techniques.

Work and Study Placements

You will complete 10 days or equivalent working in schools, in either a voluntarily or paid position, in addition to the 15 days in university. The classroom experience is undertaken as an opportunity to develop confidence, skills and understanding.

This part of the programme must be arranged by you and may be tailored to suit individual requirements. To complete the course successfully a pass in the assignment is required. The assignment is a reflective log based upon the ten days in school.

Learning and teaching methods

The University Certificate Returning and Supply Teachers course runs one day a week, currently on a Wednesday, for fifteen weeks beginning in February. Each session covers a National Curriculum subject of learning or another important theme.

The days are varied and involve a range of teaching and learning strategies including lectures, discussions, workshops, practical activities, directed and independent learning, and where appropriate informal tutorials.

Assessment methods

Assessment is 100% coursework and includes one assignment, which involves the recording of a reflective school diary based on the ten days spent in the primary school of your choice, in order to obtain maximum advantage from the classroom experience.

Employment Prospects

This course enables those teachers who have lost contact with current practice to return to the classroom. In addition, many teachers who originally qualified as secondary school teachers have found the course helpful in obtaining work in the primary sector, and currently employed supply teachers have been able to secure permanent posts.

Within the context of the globalisation of markets and of competition, human resources are an ever more decisive factor of competitive advantage for both companies and non-profit organisations. With the progressive leveling of the fields of technological and process know-how, the individual is indeed the one true discriminating factor.

Ultimately, the individual’s competencies, motivations, innovation capabilities and overall professional performance quality determine an organisation’s success. From such a perspective, companies and institutions must equip themselves with experts capable of both fully understanding the central role of the individual and of overseeing the related managerial processes, such as: selection, hiring, training, communication, development and compensation.

The MPA + MSW Dual-Degree Program prepares students for administrative positions in social service agencies.

The program is designed to ensure students acquire both the management and social work skills necessary to excel in these environments.

By carefully structuring the sequence of courses, recognizing comparable course offerings, and using courses in one program to count as electives in the other, students are often able to complete both degrees in three years of full-time study without compromising the professional standards of either program.
