The modules in this course will lay the foundations for your understanding of the world of global journalism, and more importantly, how to build skills to become an international journalist.

You will build specialist knowledge from professional journalists in TV, radio, print, web and much more, in order to equip you with the knowledge for a range of media platforms. This course is highly practical and will have you out on the field from day 1.

In second year, you’ll also be preparing for your dissertation and your practical project. Your dissertation is a major independent research project on a topic of your choice, which you submit at the end of the course.

The course also has a French module each semester, to build your knowledge of the language and culture of the country you will be living in.
