  • Objectives
    This course is run jointly with the Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies. 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. Russian courses at Sheffield focus on small-group teaching. You'll be taught by internationally-renowned experts in our field and by native speakers of the language. You'll gain a thorough grounding in all aspects of spoken and written Russian, including conversation, reading, translating and oral presentation. We also hone your reading, presentation and writing skills in English. All students follow either a beginners or an advanced (post-A Level) Russian course, depending on their qualifications. They also follow a core programme of modules in Russian cultural and social history that complements language instruction at each level. In addition, you may also choose from an exciting range of optional modules, including Russian thought, literature, art and visual culture, Soviet politics and culture, East European cinema, linguistics, and other Slavonic languages (Czech or Polish). You spend at least one semester in Russia during your year abroad.
