International Journalism - MA


Course Description

UCLan’s MA in International Journalism aims to develop journalism skills through the production of news in realistic exercises and assignments and to study journalism through research and analysis of news production in a range of international and national settings.

Practical journalism is central to this postgraduate course and alongside an awareness of international awareness; this course will develop your understanding of the fundamental principles that underpin news production. This enables you to develop an adaptable approach to journalism and the abilities to apply their knowledge in a range of different media settings.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

Journalism at UCLan is a student-focused, practical and theoretical course. Throughout the course, students are encouraged to be self-directed, and to focus on options that allow them to build up a substantial knowledge in a specialist area within the degree.

Students are encouraged to expand their technical skills in our state of the art studios and labs. International Journalism students, particularly, are encouraged to study part of their course abroad, and there is a wide range of exchange programmes available, to dozens of countries.

Students will be assessed by undertaking a wide range of assignments. These include practical reporting projects, compiling portfolios, reflective learning logs, research and analytical projects, essays and oral presentations.

FURTHER INFORMATION

Students studying journalism for the first time will gain core news skills in newspaper reporting. More advanced practical learning continues to focus on newspaper production, although broadcasting and online journalism skills are introduced. The development of practical skills is supported by study, research and critical analysis of journalism and the news media in a range of national and international contexts. The final part of the International Journalism course enables students to further develop their skills and knowledge by choosing to undertake either a major practical journalism project involving international reporting or through a substantial research study.

Students from non-English speaking countries will have the chance to improve their language skills through a programme of English learning.
