Overview

This flexible course will enable you to do both at the same time. Learning within a stimulating creative community, you’ll gain skills for jobs in journalism and many other careers that value excellence in communication and analysis.

In the Journalism modules you’ll work up to professional standards as you research, present and produce stories across different media. You’ll have the opportunity to build a high-quality portfolio of published work that’s invaluable when it comes to job applications.

In Literature modules you’ll cover topics from Shakespeare to contemporary fiction. As you produce independent interpretations of texts and concepts, you’ll foster your appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of literary texts.
