It will also help you develop the ability to reflect critically on the nature and limitations of news coverage.

You’ll undertake in-depth study of UK law and public affairs,(including media law and regulation), as commonly required by prospective employers in mainstream UK journalism.

In addition to your Master’s Extended Journalism Project, you’ll undertake compulsory modules that will arm you with practical skills, give you an understanding of ethical journalism, and help you see the role of the media from a broader perspective. You’ll also select an optional module to further your specific interests.

The course includes a number of talks by invited professionals as well as visits, which in the past have included political and media destinations, both locally and in London.
