Why study this course?
This course combines the theoretical and practical exploration of film and television with the teaching of journalistic skills using our up-to-date facilities.

You'll make use of our journalism newsroom to produce journalistic investigations and reports, which may be published online on the Holloway Express.
Changes in technology are presenting significant challenges for the newspaper, film and television businesses, and the explosion of online video is creating a major shift in the relationship between consumers and producers of news. In this degree you’ll explore these issues and more and develop an understanding of the film and television industries as well as the issues and image these media present on screen.
You’ll also have the opportunity to make short films or develop screenplays using our cutting-edge digital production and editing facilities, and to produce journalism across a range of genres including critical, popular and investigative reporting. This degree prepares you for a career as a journalist with specialist knowledge of the moving image or for work in factual television or film entertainment, or writing in a non-journalistic direction.
You'll develop your journalistic skills through workshops, exciting news days and use of mobile technologies.
