Overview

Solent University’s Journalism, Publishing and Public Relations subject area was ranked 17th in the Guardian University League Tables 2019.
This course offers you the skills to be an essential part of this dynamic industry, planning, creating and distributing fashion content across online and offline platforms to a global audience.

You will develop not only your ability to research, write, interview and broadcast, but also design, produce and publish content for a range of formats, from magazines to online. You’ll build skills and understanding of photography and filmmaking, becoming the kind of multi-skilled operator who can meet any kind of industry need.

And you’ll have the chance to specialise, as live briefs from the industry – and internships with industry partners – give you that essential hands-on experience that can get you in the door. Plus through practical assignments, internships and wider work placements, you will graduate with a stunning and creative professional portfolio of work.

Our course team’s extensive industry contacts – and our growing alumni network – are what makes it all happen. Past students have had the opportunity to build their experience at many of the top fashion and beauty titles in the UK and overseas, including Elle, Esquire, Dazed, Cosmo, and SHOWstudio.

Some also assist top PR agencies who work with major influencers and celebrities, representing clients at London Fashion Week, and organising incredible launch events, while our alumni also work for fashion brands on content and social media strategy. With journalism and PR working more closely than ever, employers really value a solid understanding of both of these skillsets.

Fashion is a truly international industry, and recently students have enjoyed a number of trips, travelling to iconic fashion capitals including Paris, Milan and New York to visit publication houses, exhibitions, fashion archives and attend press events.

If you are looking for a fashion journalism degree that teaches the full multimedia package, this could be the perfect fit for you.
