Overview

​The MA in Journalism at Leeds Trinity Universityprovides a comprehensive understanding of professional journalism practice, including researching and substantiating news stories, interviewing techniques and establishing contacts. Hands-on camera, studio, editing and mobile journalism skills are taught so that our trainees are confident and competent on their industry work placements.

Awareness of professional roles, law, public affairs and the regulatory responsibilities of journalists is taught, along with a critical understanding of the political and commercial structures within which the media operate. News skills are refined and there are opportunities to research and over specific areas of interest to showcase a professional versatility across a range of media platforms.

Key facts:

Our MA has rare dual accreditation by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) and the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC).

These are the accreditations that editors look for when recruiting a trainee journalist because they effectively mean that the trainee has successfully completed a course that meets the 'gold standard' of journalism training. The accreditation recognises the quality of the course in developing journalists for the demands of a fast-changing multimedia industry. Students sit the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism alongside their MA at no additional cost for their first attempts.
