Journalism and Media
In journalism you will develop professional writing skills with an awareness of the target audience and the legal and ethical framework for publishing.
The academic study of journalism involves the development of key journalistic skills including the ability to write a news story, conduct an interview and put together a feature article.
Students also conduct an analysis of the differences between types of newspaper and the news values they display, examine major ethical and legal issues pertaining to the practice of journalism in the UK.
Studying media will give you the opportunity to work creatively, the image above is an example of a student project we submitted to prestigious D&AD competition, New Blood Awards, (Nokia brief) by Rhys Bennett 2014 who was shortlisted. We are proud of our students and have high expectations of their success.
Everyone will study Media (Media Cultures and New Media Publishing) and Journalism in their first year. You then have the option to choose one of the three optional subjects to study in your first year.
