With an industry-informed curriculum, this future-focused MA combines computing and media and communications to reflect digital journalism at its most current.

Imagine getting your work recognised by Tim Berners Lee, having your project featured in the The New York Times, or winning the Guardian’s student digital journalist awards. These are the kinds of things that happen on this dynamic programme. 

The questions we ask

From delivering news on wearables, to the latest developments in live reporting, the questions we ask are informed by an industry panel featuring the heads of digital at organisations including The Guardianthe Financial Times, and the BBC. We want to define the transformative nature of digital journalism so we explore critical and entrepreneurial approaches and get hands-on, experimenting with the latest journalistic innovations. 

The processes we use

It’s really important for us that you graduate with a set of core digital journalism skills so half of the degree focuses on the computing side of the discipline and half on media and communications. This means you get a holistic MA, where you study the foundations of digital journalism and practise it in its most current forms.

You’ll have the chance to study multimedia and interactive journalism, look at interactive documentaries, digital reporting, and video journalism. You’ll also learn coding, so you can get to grips with using algorithms and data sets, and do social network analysis to monitor what’s going on behind the screens.

The approach we take

Through our partnerships with BBC news labs and The Times’ development team, we make sure we’re keeping up with industry but also working with it. 

We want you to reimagine the medium while you’re here, so you get the chance to specialise in your own area of interest for your final project. This could be anything from an interactive website to a video production using interactive story telling and text. We offer a lot of support when it comes to the coding side of the course. A boot camp before the start of the programme gives you an introduction to some of the techniques and languages. 

What you go away with are the core skills for news writing, video, and computational techniques and some amazing industry contacts.

Modules & structure

Students without a technical background will be encouraged to take our pre-session Digital Bootcamp in September to gain a basic literacy in digital fundamentals, and to get to know fellow students. 

The degree consists of modules taught by both departments in a truly interdisciplinary and collaborative style.

You will study the following core modules:

Assessment

You are required to undertake and pass every element of the programme. Each module is individually assessed using a variety of provisions including digital projects, written work, and exam.

Skills & careers

Our graduates have gone on to work within diverse roles from delivering communications for UNICEF in Bangladesh, to creating content for Rolling Stone magazine in New York.
