If you’re interested in learning about how journalism is practised across the world, what threats and challenges it faces and if you want to get some hands-on practical experience then the MA in Global Journalism is for you.
The MA Global Journalism combines theoretical and practical concerns with regard to the principles of a free press and its relationship to political and civil institutions. It examines, compares and contrasts the diverse forms of regulation and restrictions – both legitimate and illegitimate – surrounding the practice of journalism around the world.
You’ll get involved in debates about the key issues facing news journalism in a comparative global context and get hands-on practical experience in writing for various media platforms and communicating news in the contemporary global environment.
