Comments about Magazine Journalism MA-PgDip - At the institution - Kingston Upon Thames - Greater London

  • Objectives
    Magazine journalism occupies a rapidly expanding yet fiercely competitive professional arena. Our new Magazine Journalism MA/PgDip is designed to give those aspiring to work in this burgeoning sector the best possible start on the road to success.
  • Academic Title
    Magazine Journalism MA/PgDip
  • Course description
    Students will be taught through a combination of theoretical modules, delivered in lectures and seminars, and practical workshops focusing on hands-on journalistic activities, such as writing, interviewing, sub-editing and magazine production. Applicants will be offered the chance to study Magazine Journalism as a full field option or to combine it with MA Publishing.

    Course programme
    The Magazine Journalism MA/PgDip will cover many of the subjects already taught under Kingston’s existing Journalism MA/PgDip programme. These include news writing, sub-editing and design techniques, online journalism, research skills and media law.

    Students will produce their own group magazines in both print and online form, as well as undertaking at least one placement on a real title. The course will also offer four bespoke modules – feature writing; design and production; journalism practices; and the business of magazines, which takes a practical and critical look at the nature and structure of the periodical sector.

    Students graduate with an MA on successful completion of a 15,000-word dissertation or a related practical project.
