If you’re interested in a career in the media industry worldwide, our course aims to be a comprehensive interdisciplinary introduction to an advancement of global journalism and public relations, which is underpinned by hands-on professional practice from the outset.

We will consider how news and other related outputs are produced and consumed in the modern world – and why media and communication is no longer an issue of control and concern either for the Nation State or a factor limited to national economies or internal affairs alone. Examples include Wikileaks exposés and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ work.

Career prospects

This Global Journalism and Public Relations course at Coventry University aims to prepare you for a broad range of positions in regional, national or international journalism, media and communications – as a researcher, reporter, writer, editor or presenter, for example.

Career prospects are vast and varied, from established national and international media outlets, broadcasting organisations, newspapers and magazines, to emerging broadcast contexts, such as web-based text journalism, web-TV and web-radio.
