Comments about MA Journalism Studies (Web) - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire

  • Objectives
    All our applied courses emphasise core, generic journalism skills and knowledge - writing, researching, interviewing, organising and structuring information - and then apply them to the different media platforms. This is achieved through media production to professional standards in a simulated workplace environment, work experience and exposure to media professionals. Students examine a range of journalism issues - ethical, legal, historical, organisational - recognising that the best journalists are those who reflect on journalistic practice. The MA in Journalism Studies (Web) is a flexible programme of study for those who wish to combine the practice of journalism with a greater variety of academic study. It is particularly appropriate if you plan a career outside the UK. Graduates from Sheffield are working in a range of online news organisations including the Press Association and the Daily Mail.
