  • Course description

    This MA course in Journalism and New Media aims to develop postgraduates who can critically explore the ways in which new media forms and practices are facilitating a transformational shift in news and journalism. Of particular interest is the impact the internet is having on the news industry, with relevant issues including:

    • The emergence of innovative strategies of news gathering, distribution and presentation;
    • Efforts to secure new business models;
    • Changing patterns in news consumption;
    • Challenges for government policy-making and regulation;
    • And the rise of collaborative, citizen-based approaches to news reporting, amongst many others.

    Key debates concerning topics such as citizen journalism, blogging and social media will be explored in a diverse range of contexts, such as environmental, war, conflict and crisis reporting.

    You will be encouraged to develop critical perspectives, enabling you to re-invigorate traditional thinking about news and journalism. You will be equipped with an understanding of how to carry out research enquiries and/or journalistic investigations of topics relevant to your interests.

    In addition, you will consider how new types of journalism can be developed to foster renewed civic engagement among citizens, empowering you to take action on issues of local, regional and/or global concern.
