Why Journalism?

Our BA(Hons) Journalism will develop your reporting and production skills across print, screen, audio and internet platforms, making you highly employable in many communications industries. Working individually and as part of a team, you will deliver work to live briefs and deadlines, apply your analytical skills to solve problems and develop imaginative ways of engaging diverse audiences.

The course will give you the confidence to work flexibly, creatively and independently and to communicate ideas and information in all formats. You will also engage with journalism at a more critical level, understanding and applying theories to issues ranging from representation to ownership, celebrity to conflict.
