Multimedia Journalism BA (Hons)

If you’d like to work in the fast-paced world of journalism then this is the course for you. You’ll gain all the skills needed to work in a multi-disciplinary media environment, including TV, radio, print and online journalism.

You’ll learn the essential theoretical framework and hone your practical skills by producing copy, bulletins and broadcast packages in newsrooms and digital studios, which replicate professional working environments. You’ll be taught the importance of originality and be introduced to innovative storytelling techniques.

You’ll also have the opportunity to complete either two short placements or a 30-week placement in industry. This enables you to put theory into practice, make industry contacts and gain insight into how the sector operates.

When you graduate, you’ll have a degree accredited by three industry-recognised bodies. As an NCTJ accredited course, you’ll sit exams in reporting, essential law, court reporting, public affairs, production and shorthand. These widely recognised professional qualifications can radically enhance your credibility and employability as a practicing journalist.

In 2018, our students scooped prizes at both the NCTJ and BJTC Awards, showing the high calibre of work our students are producing – choosing this course could see you follow in their footsteps.
