2. 개설과정: Journalism BA Honours
- Course content
The course is split equally between practice and media analysis. Practice classes focus on building cross-media skills, testing those skills in production tasks (creating websites, newspapers and magazines), and enabling you to specialise in a particular area of journalism. Theory classes help you to develop a critical understanding of the media industries, their products and their audiences. There are no closed-book exams (except in one optional theory module) as practical work is assessed on output and a ‘log book’, and theory work is assessed on essays and performance in seminars. You can also take advantage of our Study Abroad agreements with overseas universities, spending half an academic year at another university.
Practice – You learn about the basic structure and requirements of news organisations, and develop core journalistic skills such as research, reporting, and writing news and features, for print, broadcast and online media. You also learn online and multimedia news gathering and presentation skills.
Theory – There are two compulsory analysis modules in the first year, Media and Society, and Story, Sound, Image and Text, which introduce you to the frameworks in which the media operate and some of the major theoretical tools for analysing them. They consider the place of the media in society, politics, arts and culture. A core module introduces students to research techniques and study skills.
Practice – You develop further skills in production, design and writing; you will create features, news and multimedia content for publications and websites. You can choose from two sets of optional modules, one focusing on various areas of specialist journalism, the other on broadcast journalism and online media.
Theory – In the first semester, you take two compulsory modules, Media Transformations, and Network Society and the Media. You then choose two theory modules. Choices on offer currently include:
Practice – In the third year, you take a compulsory module, Final Journalism Project, in the media of your choice, and a specialist journalism module.
Theory – You normally choose one more analysis module to gain the required credits for your degree. Options include:
To complete your theory work, you produce an academic dissertation on any subject concerned with media or journalism.
From Year 2 to the end of Year 3 you are encouraged to do as many work placements as possible. Work experience is a degree requirement, and you will need to find your own placements, though staff can help you if you experience difficulties.
