About this course
The International Multimedia and Journalism programme from Newcastle University is a practice-focused, theory-informed course that provides skills, strategies and theoretical understanding needed to step into careers in journalism and digital communications.
The course provides an international context suitable for students from across the globe.
You will have the opportunity to learn alongside and collaborate with professional journalists.
We work with a range of organisations to support high-quality journalism. You will hear from and work with experts and innovators and explore advances in journalism. There will also be the opportunity to experiment and develop new ways to do journalism.
You can take part in projects to expand your knowledge and skills, such as our Civic Journalism Lab collaboration with the BBC.
The course covers key areas of knowledge and professional practice which reflect the way journalists work today. However journalism’s role in society, how we do journalism, and careers in journalism is constantly transforming. This course is designed to be a ‘laboratory of inquiry’ and prepare you to successfully negotiate these changes, as you progress through your career in journalism or the wider fields of professional communication.
