MA International Journalism

MA International Journalism

The MA course in International Journalism offers the opportunity to gain a perspective on 21st century journalism in different media and in different countries. It offers a mix of practice and theory, techniques and advanced academic study, and is ideal for international students wanting to strengthen journalistic competence in their own countries. Though the degree offers practical journalism, it remains an academic Master's degree, with a learning environment designed to deepen professional knowledge and understanding.

The course duration is one year full-time. Students complete this across two semesters (Autumn and Spring) from the end of September to the beginning of June. Students are then required to submit a dissertation at the end of August. Students choose to specialise in broadcast, documentary, magazine or newspaper.
