Benefiting from our current links with the media industry, including the BBC, Al Jazeera, Sky, Africa-based media and online outlets both here in the UK and USA, this Master’s course prepares you for practice and analysis of global journalism and media. It covers all the areas of journalism, from legal and ethical issues to practical interviewing, writing, broadcast and web skills. More importantly, it will improve your intercultural competence and familiarity with the international issues that make headlines worldwide.
Currently, taught by practiced journalists and presenters, you will in addition have opportunities to attend guest lectures (subject to availability), which amongst others, have previously been delivered by the BBC Director General and Channel 4 founder, as well as presenters Jon Snow and Jeremy Paxman.
Gaining hands-on experience, you will be expected to work as part of a team to write articles, as well as edit, design and publish a digitally-distributed magazine, Global Eye. In the 2016 edition, one student predicted Wales’ success in the European Championships, while another wrote an analysis on the perceptions around immigration – one of the key issues in the European Union ‘remain or leave’ vote in the UK.
