Summary

Postgraduate programmes in journalism at Kent offer you the opportunity to research and learn in an environment that combines excellence in the practice of convergent, multimedia journalism with intellectual leadership in the history, ethics and future of the news industry.

Overview

The MA International Multimedia Journalism teaches professional vocational skills to graduates of universities outside the UK who aspire to a career in the news industry in their home country. This course differs from our other taught MA programme in that it is not accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ), as the standard NCTJ diploma focuses on UK media law and the British system of government.

In this programme you learn to report for newspapers, news websites, radio and television channels in state-of-the-art newsrooms, learning reporting skills which are applicable to, and recognised by, news organisations around the world. Study at the only UK university which is co-located with a professional TV station, KMTV. Your tutors are award-winning journalists with front-line experience in local, national and international newsrooms.

Teaching and assessment

The degree is taught by a combination of lectures, seminars, masterclasses, news days, tutorials and editorial conferences. Assessment is by coursework (including essays, reporting exercises and presentations) and examinations.

Programme aims

This programme aims to:

  • teach the professional and academic skills required to practise multimedia journalism to those wishing to pursue a career in the news industry
  • educate you to think critically about the ethics, duties and responsibilities of journalism in democratic societies and in emerging democracies and thus improve the quality of journalism as a profession
  • produce graduates with a courageous and principled vision of the purpose of journalism and its constitutional value in contemporary democratic societies
  • develop a detailed and systematic understanding of particular forms of journalism and their historic and contemporary role in the shaping of culture and society

Careers

Our courses equip you with the necessary skills to work as a journalist. Several of our students have been offered jobs before they have finished their examinations, and editors regularly ask if our best students could apply for jobs with them.

Our students have obtained jobs at places such as Sky News, The Daily Mail, BBC News, the Huffington Post and South China Morning Post.
