This three year full-time degree programme concentrates on expanding the student's knowledge and skills in the thriving world of journalism. Media based training, both practical and academic, is central to the programme as we prepare students for a career in media. Students learn to work in real journalistic situations - in print and broadcasting - over the course of the six semesters. NUJ recognition of the programme entitles students to a student NUJ Card for each year of the programme. Students learn a range of media production and academic skills, which allows integration of investigative and practical skills. Print and broadcast media production is catered for, alongside learning about the society that students write about or comment upon.
