In the Journalism (Joint Honours) (Hons) course from De Montfort University, you will have the opportunity to contribute to DMU’s own student media group Demon Media, with the chance to produce content for multimedia platforms including a magazine, radio station, YouTube channel and website.
You will study a range of core journalism modules such as Reporting, Critical Perspectives on Journalism, and Issues in Journalism. Your final-year studies will provide the opportunity to prepare a portfolio of your work including any content that has been published during work experience or on Demon Media platforms. Optional modules include Sports Journalism, Magazine Publishing, Arts and Entertainment or Political Communication.
Our Journalism tutors have close links with all forms of news media and have worked for – and continue to work for – many of Leicestershire's newspapers and radio stations. This means our Journalism courses have strong industry links with newspapers and radio stations in the local area. The courses have an excellent reputation both regionally and nationally, allowing our students to win prestigious work experience placements.
Widen your skillset and enhance your employability prospects further by studying Journalism joint with another specialist subject, such as Creative Writing, English, English Language, Film Studies, History, International Relations, Politics or Media.
Many of our graduates progress into professional multi-platform journalism roles, while a joint honours course will enhance employability through opening up a range of career paths such as PR and communications. Some graduates also choose to continue studying specialist postgraduate courses such as our Investigative Journalism MA, developed with Channel 4.
