Programme structure

Students build a set of critical skills by applying key concepts and ideas to develop practical solutions for work-relevant projects.

Year 1 is foundational and introduces the academic study of media, developing core skills and understanding in the use of media across a variety of contexts. There is a particular focus upon the impact of digital technologies as new and old media converge.

In Year 2, students take two mandatory modules with other media and communication students; take specialist modules in feature writing and explore current issues in journalism; and are able to tailor their learning by choosing from a range of optional modules. The Work Placement module gives students the chance to think carefully about their ‘graduate exit strategy’ and what they need to do to achieve the career they want.

In the final year, students take a module in documentary and photojournalism and a module designed to provide preparation for working in magazine and periodical sectors. Students can produce a portfolio of articles, or undertake a conventional dissertation focusing on any aspect of media, communication or journalism, for the Extended Independent Study. Again, students tailor their learning by choosing from a variety of optional modules, many of which reflect the research interests of staff.
