University of Buckingham

Program description

Journalism informs, entertains, introduces debate, publicises truth, and is an essential component of a democratic society. It is practised across a variety of media (print, broadcast, online) and uses a number of
technologies. At Buckingham you are taught by practising journalists with a love of teaching and of sharing their expertise and knowledge.

The University of Buckingham offers three combined honours degrees. The following core courses are common to all: Advertising; Art of Journalism, Broadcast Journalism, Business Journalism, Introduction to Reporting, Introduction to Multimedia, Investigative Reporting, Media Discourse, Media Studies, News Management and PR, Online Media, Photo-journalism, Press Journalism and Principles of Media Practice.

You are also guaranteed a substantial work placement with a media firm, tailored to your choice and the department’s recommendation. Not only will you become familiar with life in the workplace, but the experience you gain will be valued by employers.

Journalism with Communication Studies particularly suits EFL and ESL speakers. It combines the study of journalism with the study of the use of English as the essential communicative medium, training you as a journalist while developing your understanding of the English Language.
