Broadcast Journalism MA University of the West of Scotland



Course info



Our accredited MA Broadcast Journalism course will equip you with the necessary skills, knowledge, understanding and other attributes expected of professional broadcast journalists at the start of their careers. The course is accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council, which represents the broadcast industry including the BBC, ITN, Channel 4 and Global Radio.

From the outset you will develop expertise in newswriting, interviewing, presenting, editing, and online content, as well as deepening your awareness of the legal, moral and regulatory issues that confront working journalists. You will be encouraged to engage critically with, and make informed judgments on, current professional practices and ethical issues.

You will apply specialised techniques and also, at Masters level, plan and carry out a significant project of original research, culminating in a documentary or broadcast portfolio. Recent documentaries have investigated cryptocurrency, media representation and women politicians, African migrants now living in Scotland and the impact social media is having on the world of science.


The course has an outstanding employment record. Recent graduates have found work at the BBC and STV, a host of commercial radio stations such as Radio Clyde and Heart, busy media offices, and a range of high-quality journalism employers.
