Journalism Studies BA (Hons) University of Sheffield



What will I learn?

This degree is currently accredited by the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Professional Publishing Association. As part of your 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. Another day could find you interviewing a celebrity or a sports star. We teach everything: all the relevant law, history, ethics and standards. We'll help you to develop practical skills such as research, communication and interviewing techniques. 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.
