Skills will be honed through your work in the simulated newsroom and then on placements in professional newsrooms. At the same time you will develop your critical ability to engage with current theoretical and methodological debates.
The Digital Journalism programme at The University of Winchester aims to shape 'confident learners' by enabling students to develop the skills to excel in their studies here that are transferable to further studies or the employment market.
Graduates go into print, broadcast and electronic media as reporters, producers and researchers. Support is given in seeking both work placements during study and employment thereafter to assist the process of a successful career in journalism.
