Newspaper Journalism MA

The course has an exceptional reputation and an outstanding graduate employment record. The degree has been helping aspiring journalists into employment since 1982.

The course combines professional skills training in reporting, interviewing, writing, editing, research and newspaper production (in print and online) with a concern for professional standards and critical and ethical reflection.

Many students undertake work placements in their chosen field, taking advantage of our location, usually arranging them for the winter and/or spring break.

The department includes former BBC politics editor Professor Suzanne Franks; the former Guardian Media Editor Professor Jane Martinson, investigative journalist Dr Paul Lashmar; and award-winning Freedom of Information expert, Heather Brooke.

We have been running Journalism courses at City since 1976. In the years since, over 5,000 students have graduated and are now working in the media around the world.
