Course Description

The course is suitable for graduates and experienced journalists. It has an international context suitable for students from across the globe.

The way we teach and deliver this course is continually informed by best practice across the industry.

You will undertake three intensive taught modules in professional practice in the third semester instead of a traditional research dissertation. These modules will be taught by specialist tutors from the industrial sector with strong backgrounds in journalism on print, broadcast and digital platforms.

The three compulsory modules in semester three are: Advanced Reporting Skills, Online Journalism, and Broadcast and Video Journalism. As part of the broadcast module, you will prepare a video news package and you will spend a day working in modern TV studios, presenting your news packages in the form of an evening television magazine programme.

Delivery

You will complete 120 credits of compulsory and optional modules through:
•lectures
•seminars
•practical workshops

Depending on your module choice, you will study three or four modules per semester. You will work independently and in groups to:
•undertake wider reading
•take part in discussions
•develop topics for investigation with advice from tutors

Module assessment is by coursework consisting of:
•essays
•oral presentations
•reports
•projects

There are no timetabled sessions during the seventh of the 12 weeks. This allows you to catch up on your work or, if you are progressing well, take a break.

The course runs from the start of September until the end of August the following year. We recommend that you arrange accommodation in Newcastle for the duration of the course.

Facilities: You will have access to a range of specialist facilities available through Culture Lab. You will have access to:
•cameras
•voice recorders
