Over the three years of your course, you will cover the core themes of:
Journalism practice: practical approaches to producing content for a variety of digital formats using the traditional techniques and approaches of broadcast and written formats.
Journalism and media theory: the interrogation of your chosen area of practice – such as sport, celebrity or political journalism - contextualized by a thorough grounding in the wider media landscape.
Industry-standard components – including the essential guide to media law and regulation and systems of government in the UK and beyond. The opportunity to study shorthand via our Add+vantage scheme.
Life as a journalist – collaborating with our industry partners to deliver live projects and undertaking your own professional placement.
Our modules include lectures, seminars, workshops, practical classes, and one-to-one tutorials with teaching staff. Real experience of working as a journalist is embedded into our teaching activities through our partnerships with organisations in Coventry and beyond.
At the heart of our curriculum are the news days which enable us to test your skills in a live environment so you experience the excitement of news production.
