BA (Hons) Broadcast Journalism

In BA (Hons) Journalism, the focus is on developing vital transferable communication and social skills, intellectual flexibility and personal initiative. For instance, practical skills are developed by being sent out to report on the news and you will learn editing and production techniques required across all the platforms of print, online and broadcast. Shorthand is taught along with news and feature writing, providing you with the perfect platform to develop specialisms such as magazine writing and sports writing. In contrast, students of BA (Hons) Broadcast Journalism are taught how to write news and work as presenters and reporters on TV and radio. They learn how to find stories, report, interview, use a TV camera and radio equipment and how to produce and direct in a studio. Students cover local, national and international events, sports news and even celebrity gossip. There are modules on Government, Politics and Journalistic Ethics, and a strong emphasis on the law relating to broadcast journalism.

BA (Hons) Sports Journalism

The BA (Hons) in Sports Journalism is a market leader in this subject. Students are introduced to the practical skills of journalism, including the reporting of sports events using print, online, radio and TV. A background to Sports Policy and an introduction to the Sociology of Sport are also taught along with Media Law and Shorthand. This award has been designed to improve sports news, feature writing and broadcasting skills. Students also receive essential technical training in editing and production techniques in preparation for work placement in a sports journalism environment.
