This multi-disciplinary course combines practical training in radio, TV, newspaper, magazine and online journalism with academic study and is the perfect foundation for a career in journalism. Your studies will be reinforced by opportunities to get involved with regular student publications and websites, consolidating what you have learned through your course. Course Details
Through this course you will develop a critical understanding of the professional skills you will need as a journalist, in a world where communication technologies play an increasingly central role.
We focus on the practical skills that you will need to get a working knowledge of the media industry. You will produce magazines, news blogs and radio and TV packages, often in co-operation with local media outlets, as well as running your own blog site, offering the opportunity to showcase your work. As well as the study of print, online and broadcast journalism practices, the course is underpinned by modules exploring and honing writing techniques and skills.
Studying Multimedia Journalism as a Joint honours degree allows you to study another subject alongside. You can study them both equally, or focus on one more than the other, creating a major/minor split.

Our annual Subject Futures Week is an exciting event and an excellent opportunity for our students to explore the potential of their course and understand where their university experience can lead them beyond graduation. It offers a unique chance to network with high profile industry professionals from the arts, TV, film, fashion and more.
