The Multimedia Journalism programme from University of Kent assumes no previous training in journalism. It is designed to convert knowledge gained through undergraduate studies in humanities, sciences and social sciences into a journalistic specialism. Your tutors are award-winning journalists with experience in local, national and international news and leading academics in law and politics. You will study for the National Council for the Training of Journalists' (NCTJ) Diploma in Journalism and produce a portfolio of eye-catching, strikingly original stories. Optional modules may include political journalism, reporting conflict, sports journalism, travel journalism, television production and advanced multimedia storytelling.
Recent guest speakers at the Centre include Sophie Ridge, Senior Political Correspondent Sky News, Amol Rajan, Media Editor of the BBC; Ed Conway, Economics Editor Sky News; Alex Crawford three times RTS TV journalist of the year; John Humphrys presenter BBC Radio 4's Today Programme and Faisal Islam, Political Editor Sky News
This degree will prepare students for employment in broadcast, print and online media as well as enabling them to take advantage of the new opportunities the awareness of media power has created within campaign and pressure groups, online information providers and businesses.
