The Journalism modules are designed to equip students with essential knowledge and skills relevant to today’s rapidly changing world of media. This (Hons) English and Journalism course at University of Lincoln also provides the opportunity for students to undertake a chronological study of English literature and to examine a rich and comprehensive range of works.

In the third year, students can choose from a wide range of optional modules and have the opportunity to undertake a work placement to gain real-world experience. Students also produce a dissertation on a topic of their choice.
