Join a global effort to inform and connect people round the world through Scotland's leading journalism master's programme - GCU's MA Multimedia Journalism. GCU offers the only postgraduate journalism degree in Scotland that is accredited by both of the UK's primary professional training bodies: the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Broadcast Journalism Training Council.

The MA Multimedia Journalism boasts a more than 75% employment rate, placements in media organisations including the BBC, STV and the Herald & Times Group, and more Scottish Student Journalism Awards than any other master's programme. Prepare to make a real impact in a rapidly changing media landscape.

You'll study in Glasgow, Scotland's 'media city', and get hands-on experience with all of the in-demand skills of today, from interviewing and reporting to writing and editing - across print, broadcast and digital platforms. We'll train you in shorthand, photography, video production and web content management, and give you in-depth instruction in government and law.

You'll learn in modern, industry-standard and purpose-built facilities, including a multimedia newsroom, editorial and radio production suites, digital radio studios, and a TV studio and gallery. In addition, you'll benefit from GCU's close relationship with industry through work placement agreements with major news organisations across Scotland. Our graduates complete their MA Multimedia Journalism programme with the skills they need to compete in a constantly transforming industry and contribute to the common good - whether they choose employment in the UK or abroad.

What you will study

  • Scots Law for Journalists
  • Reporting
  • Multimedia Production and Presentation
  • Journalism in Context
  • Multimedia Newsdays
  • Multimedia Journalism Project

Teaching methods

The MA Multimedia Journalism at GCU includes all the key skills and knowledge you will need to begin a career in journalism.

Shorthand, Government, Law, and News & Online Writing are all compulsory subjects, with classes in these subjects and skills running every week for the entire length of the diploma programme.

In the first trimester, each week you will have practical classes in news reporting and feature writing; sub-editing & print production; and radio/TV/online journalism and production skills; as well as a weekly class studying and reflecting on Journalism in Context.

Then in second trimester the practical balance moves towards more demanding specialist reporting skills (court, council, financial, for example), and live multimedia newsday team productions, plus a specialist option.

The programme therefore is quite intense and the timetable busy, but nevertheless in each trimester almost one-third of the 39 hours in the week's timetable is left free, to enable you to do the reporting work off-campus and self-directed production practice your subjects will require you to put in.

Assessment methods

Each module is assessed separately: such as continuous coursework; exams or tests (Shorthand, and News days -which are in effect a group exam lasting a whole day); and some by a combination of coursework and NCTJ examinations (Law, Government).

All practical journalism assignments each week will be marked to appropriate professional standards of accuracy in fact and use of English. While the briefs you are given for your practical assignments are specific, your chosen story or subject can be up to you much of the time.

Shorthand is assessed by three attempts each semester at the relevant speed, with your single best performance being taken. You must achieve an absolute minimum of 60 words per minute (wpm), and we encourage you to go on to achieve 80, 90 and 100 wpm:100wpm is the recommended minimum speed for working on a newspaper and preparing for the next professional qualification after your Masters, the NCTJ's Qualification in Journalism (NQJ).

Professional accreditation

This programme is accredited by:

Work placement

You are guided by a journalist lecturer advisor in seeking and obtaining not less than 10 days' work experience in a journalism organisation by the end of the diploma, and not less than a further ten days by the end of the Masters.

Mostly this will be undertaken during vacation and assessment weeks, but there are possibilities of individual day shifts and up to one week only during teaching weeks, by negotiation with the programme leader.

Agreements are in place for placements with all major news and journalism organisations in Scotland, across TV , radio, newspapers, magazines and online.

Industry-standard facilities

You will have access to modern digital equipment in industry-standard facilities including our new, purpose-built multimedia newsroom to produce television and radio news packages, HD TV studio, and two digital radio presentation studios.

Your career

Our alumni have gone on to roles with a variety of media organisations, including the BBC, STV, Sky and Sky Sports, France 24, the Herald & Times Group, Deadline News and many more.
