Journalism and the media play a vital role in a democracy, and this Journalism (Hons) degree course at De Montfort University offers the opportunity to pursue a career that’s not only exciting, but also crucial for informing debate and discussion on a wide range of questions affecting our lives.
As well as exploring the traditional principles of journalism, you will learn how to become an effective, professionally qualified, multi-platform journalist, with video and photography integrated throughout the course.
The skills acquired from this degree course are transferable to other career paths, with many students also progressing into roles in PR and communications.
Our Journalism graduates have gone on to work for some of the UK’s biggest media companies, including major newspaper groups, magazines, PR companies and the wider communications and digital media industries.
Previous students have secured roles such as trainee journalist at the Loughborough Echo, trainee reporter at the Berkshire Media Group, broadcast journalist at Global Radio, junior features writer at Caters News Agency and a position on the ITV News graduate scheme.
Students increasingly find employment in the digital economy, where the ability to communicate effectively on a variety of platforms is a significant advantage.
