Choose Journalism at Herts

Get to know your subject

The way we consume media has been revolutionised by digital technology. Online news, podcasts and social media compete for our attention alongside newspapers, magazines and radio. But today’s journalists still need to be able to tell a story, to keep people informed and entertained, and to communicate the truth.

From learning how to webcast and create videos, to carrying out research and conducting interviews, our BA Journalism degree will give you hands-on practical experience and high-level communications skills from many different areas such as journalism, PR and marketing.

At Hertfordshire, you’ll explore journalism in the context of the wider media landscape, giving you the flexibility to mould your future, whether that’s in hard news or lifestyle journalism, social media, corporate communications, magazines, marketing or PR.

You’ll be taught by academics who have worked for the BBC, Cosmopolitan, The Guardian, The Sun, The Times and a wide variety of other media and broadcast outlets.
