Journalism (Level 3) - Full-time

Media Creative Writing

Course outline

There are millions of fascinating human stories waiting to be told. Are you curious and creative enough to get out there and find them?

Journalism is one of the fastest paced - and fastest changing - industries there is. Modern journalism isn’t just about writing – it’s about film, photography, podcasts, blogging and vlogging. And an audience doesn’t just pick up a paper or turn on the TV to find out what’s going on in the world – they track the very latest developments on Twitter, share stories on Facebook, and listen to live radio casts.

This course is perfect if you have a passion for writing or blogging about the things you love and an interest in social media, digital layout, interview techniques, video and photography.

You’ll learn skills including writing copy, online media, photography, design and video journalism. You’ll be introduced to the 24-hour news culture, the need to be first at the scene, immersed in the story and most importantly bringing the news to life. Along with the transferable skills you’ll develop, the course will help focus your career and progression aspirations.

You can expect a fast paced, creative and rewarding course delivered in our excellent facilities, including the largest TV studio in Nottingham.
