About

The Journalism programme from the University of Roehampton is about  practicing  different types of journalism, from news reporting and feature writing, to investigative journalism. Our students create blogs, podcasts, magazines, videos and multimedia stories. 

Overview

During the Journalism programme from the University of Roehampton, you will learn to do just that – telling the fascinating stories of our constantly changing world to an audience that could be as a small as a village, or as big as mankind. 

We’ll work with you to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become a multimedia journalist. Learning to produce different types of stories, from breaking news to investigative reports, you will explore writing in different contexts, from local newspapers to national magazines, and radio to social networks.  

Over your three years, you will delve into different thematic areas of journalism, such as politics, sports, music, travel and international news. You will study how journalism helps to shape public opinion and popular culture; and analyse the political, economic and legal conditions in which journalists produce their stories. We’ll also look at the structure of the media industry, and current trends and developments in our profession. 

Career options

You could go on to work as a news reporter, writer, editor or producer, or in another role on a local, national or international publication, radio, television or online media.
