MA International Multimedia Journalism

Course Description

The MA International Multimedia Journalism is taught at Beijing Foreign Studies University, Beijing. The course concentrates on developing skills for journalists to deliver stories through multiple digital platforms.

The content of the course is divided into three sections. Firstly, it will involve critical discussions on the core skills that span the three traditional modes of delivery (print, radio, TV) set against the emerging online international newscape. Secondly, you will undertake project-based learning that will challenge you to work on creative projects that require both an in-depth understanding of new technologies and a willingness to innovate and apply them in a journalistic context. Thirdly, you will engage with industry through live projects set in one of the course's collaborative news organisations.

What you will learn

The course is delivered through a combination of classroom teaching, intensive workshops and online teaching reflecting the communication methods used in the media industry. Your studies are supported by group discussions, seminars and individual tutorials. Innovation and experimentation are encouraged.

The course is one year in duration, divided into three terms. Working as a single operator mobile journalist and basing your practical work on strong stories, you will carry out assignments for multi-platform delivery; for instance, online, broadcast, print, social networks, mobile, iPad and others.

For the first term you will work on multiple short form (one to three days) assignments and explore key research questions in the multimedia journalism field. In the second term you will concentrate on two feature stories; one of which is progressed into the third term as a final project. Throughout the course you will be expected to inquire and reflect on a range of issues connected with the practice of multimedia journalism. You will share your experiences and successes with your fellow students and the group as a whole will benefit from this exchange of ideas and practical advice and experience.
