UK Journalism Courses

Introduction to Journalism

A Journalism degree is one of the oldest and most esteemed courses to study, and the continued emergence of technology and ever changing trends means the role and status of journalism in the 21st century is constantly evolving.

A UK Journalism course focuses on the core skills needed to prepare you for a career in print and online. You will focus on the practice of investigation and reporting of events, issues, and trends to a broad audience, with modules taking place on digital journalism, journalism in a wider global context, magazine journalism, multi-media journalism and the craft of short hand.
