Our course provides you with a critical understanding of the legal, political, economic and professional contexts of journalistic practice. You'll find yourself covering news from all walks of life – on live TV, radio or online news days. 

The BA (Hons) Journalism programme is a four-year course which builds insight into the media industry, developing a sophisticated skillset that will aid employability. Students who can build rounded, detailed skillsets – encompassing first-class information gathering, writing, radio and TV package creation (including the technical operation of equipment and editing software), and digital know-how (including basic coding, website design and app building) – will be best equipped for the challenges of professional practice and finding a job. 

How You'll Be Taught
You’ll learn by a variety of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, specialist workshops, practical work in our studios and independent study.


As part of your programme of study, you’ll experience a variety of assessments, though the vast majority fall into two categories:
1. academic essays, which show you understand the theory behind a subject
2. practical pieces of work (such as news stories, feature articles, radio scripts etc).
