Journalism (Level 3) - Full-time

Journalism 01

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 will teach you everything you need to know to be a versatile, modern journalist. We’ll be embracing new technologies and platforms to get your stories out to as wide an audience as possible. You’ll have a chance to hone not just your writing skills, but also your filming, radio, photographic and presenting skills. This wide knowledge base will qualify you for a wide range of University degrees.

But above all, journalism is about finding stories and searching for the truth. At every step, we’ll be encouraging you to be creative, compassionate and curious. It’ll be an amazing journey.
