Journalism Studies is a career-focused course, which will give you the skills to work in print, broadcast and online journalism, as well as related media careers. You learn how to gather, organise, write and present information in various ways. You learn relevant law, political organisation, ethics and standards. You practise journalism, day by day, on the course and have the opportunity to do work experience. You will study the products of journalism, its history, ownership and organisation, and the application of media study to media products. This new dual degree combines applied journalism and modern languages, giving you knowledge and skills highly valued by employers. About a third of teaching time is devoted to developing your written and oral fluency in Spanish, supported by language laboratory, video and satellite TV facilities and regular classes with native-speakers. All courses last four years. Level one provides a grounding in the language, culture, history and society of Spain and Latin America. Suitably qualified Dual Honours students can also take Portuguese or Catalan. Levels two and three allow you to plan your work to suit your particular interests, offering a broad coverage of Spanish and Latin American culture, history and society. Level three also includes practically-based modules on interpreting, translating, and teaching.
