  • Course description

    This course will give you an appreciation of what makes a good reporter, what sub-editing is, and how broadcast journalism works. It will enable you to decide whether you wish to take on further study, to be a journalist, or to work within the field.

    The course is as much practical as theoretical, and you will have an opportunity to carry out practical assignments to reinforce what you have learned through the course.

    Understanding Journalism demystifies the potentially glamorous field of journalism by showing how it works; and what is involved in becoming a journalist. The course also introduces broadcast and Internet journalism, and how these fields differ from the more traditional print.

    Suggestions for further study are explored, and also how you would set about becoming a journalist.
