About the course

Our students see journalism’s bigger picture: freedom of expression, ‘fake news’, media ethics and globalisation, as well as digital reporting techniques. That’s why they become great journalists, communications experts and media researchers.

This far-reaching journalism degree combines research on media practice and freedom around the world with some practical newswriting experience and events.

You’ll look at journalism within the context of globalisation, comparing and contrasting media practice around the world, immersed in vital discussions around the relationship between media, society and government – at a hugely critical moment for freedom of expression.

Since 2019, the foundation has focused on supporting Muslim individuals by offering masters scholarships that allow recipients to progress in their careers and make meaningful contributions to their industry, community and society as a whole.

Successful applicants will receive a full scholarship for their tuition fees and access to a programme of training days and career mentors via Aziz Scholarships Plus and the Aziz Scholars Association.
