Journalism Studies BA (Hons) University of Sheffield



What will I learn?

In this course you'll practise journalism every day, covering your own patch in the city. Every assignment will present a different challenge. You could be on location filming for a documentary. You may be reporting from a courtroom on the details of a criminal prosecution. This degree is double-accredited: by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Professional Publishing Association.

The learning and assessment percentages could vary depending on the modules you choose. On completion of this course our graduates are highly regarded by employers and work right across the media. Many begin on local newspapers and radio as junior reporters and the best move up to national or international level in roles such as editor or digital media editor. Some specialise in social media or video production. Employers include the BBC, Sky Sports, Al Jazeera, and The Wall Street Journal. Some go into public relations, teaching and other areas where communication skills are at a premium.
