We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Journalism equip postgraduates with advanced knowledge of the reporting industry, particularly newscasting, photography and editing of news stories. Consideration is also given to press ownership and economic principles.
Taught MA courses are typical for this subject, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes are also available. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree. Sufficient work experience may be accepted in some cases.
These Masters are usually very fast-paced, combining a mixture of vocational experience with theoretical research approaches. You will receive well-rounded training in all aspects of news reporting, from designing and undertaking broadcasting projects, to scrutinising governance and management of the press.
Many specialisations are available to postgraduates, with regards to both theme and format. For example, you may wish to gear your studies to topics such as finance, travel, sport or fashion. Alternatively, you might like to focus on a specific kind of journalism, such as broadcasting, print media including magazines, or online journalism.
Traditional careers in this field include reporting, newswriting, and print or online editing. Other careers may include roles in public relations, or legislative positions within government agencies.
