Who is it for?
The Journalism (Hons) degree at City, University of London is designed for students interested in pursuing a career in journalism, media and communications.
Journalism education at City has a real-world emphasis. Time is spent in small workshops learning the multimedia skills required for a career in 21st century journalism: from writing, reporting and interviewing to social media analytics and preparing page layouts on screen.
You will learn how to write news and features, use the professional standard TV studio and make video and audio packages and websites. Professional work experience is the key to getting a job in journalism and students are supported to arrange placements during their degree.
This is complemented by academic subjects such as history, politics and law which are delivered through lectures and seminars and assessed through examination and essays.
Our students enjoy access to a wide range of career development and employment opportunities thanks to our London location and our outstanding connections in the media.

- the BBC
