The practical elements of this degree equip the students with a thorough understanding of the principles which inform journalistic practice. A number of our graduates have gone on to work in the newspaper industry, and on television and radio, both in front of the camera and as part of the production team. Several graduates each year go on to develop their work further with us through a period of postgraduate study, where once again the School uniquely offers a combination of critical and creative approaches to the study of media and media practice.
