You’ll learn how to survive in a rapidly changing industry, cover breaking news in our state-of-the-art newsroom and develop a range of journalistic writing for different media channels and genres.

This Journalism degree offers a lively and professional introduction to the practices and ideas of journalism. You'll cover breaking news in our newsroom, enjoy exciting news days and develop a range of writing skills for different media outlets and learn video, audio and mobile techniques of a rapidly changing industry, taught by respected practitioners.

You’ll find a wealth of relevant work placement opportunities to give your career a headstart. Our students have had placements at media organisations including InStyle Magazine, BBC Radio 1, Your Media London, Islington Gazette, Hayes FM, Business In The Community, Bracknell News, October Films, sport.co.uk, Bliss, Press Association, Sunday Times, ITN and Cambridge Evening News, as well as the Daily Mail.

We host a range of well-known speakers, recently including Professor Steve Jones to talk about science in journalism, Gary Younge from the Guardian and Tom Symonds from the BBC to talk about breaking big stories from phone hacking to paedophilia.

Learning to use both the journalist’s techniques for gathering and telling stories and the academic’s skills in analysing and marshalling arguments will leave you with a strong portfolio to enter the marketplace. Join us and find your niche in the rapidly changing media landscape.
