MA International Journalism


Course Description

The course has two main themes:
Learning journalism skills through producing news in realistic exercises and assignments.
Studying journalism through research and analysis of news production in a range of international and national settings.

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.

Practical journalism is related to the international arenas through an emphasis on understanding the fundamental principles that underpin news production. This enables students to develop an adaptable approach to journalism and the abilities to apply their knowledge in a range of different media settings.

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 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.
