What will I learn?

This one year Certificate of Higher Education in Journalism is an exciting and engaging programme of study which will allow you to work with your peers and professional journalists to create engaging journalism content on a variety of topics. Are you interested in sports journalism, news, or lifestyle content? This course will help you explore what it means to be a journalist today and why high journalistic standards are more important than ever.In a world where a smartphone is all you need to break a story, what sets the good and the great apart? How do you start? How do you get professional experience?You will learn the skills and attributes you need to succeed in this rapidly changing sector and investigate the societal impact this crucial industry has on us all. There are big questions to open up and answer: How does an event become news? How do you reconcile the right to privacy with the importance of the freedom of the press? Where does the truth lie in a world of fake news and citizen journalism? This is a course for the bold, the brave and the curious: sharp, passionate, questioning minds who’ll shape our perspectives tomorrow.Your UA92 degree goes far beyond the traditional academic experience.Each academic year, in addition to your four subject modules, you’ll study an extra credit-bearing module, which focuses entirely on character and personal development. You’ll get to take on a real-life project, based on a live scenario, set by one of our industry partners.You’ll experience first-hand the current issues facing the industry, get the opportunity to apply your subject knowledge, challenge your perspectives, step outside your comfort zone and build key employability skills to prepare you for your future career. These experiences are instrumental in developing transferable skills and key competencies such as leadership, resilience and well-being, communication, problem-solving and team-working. To help you track your progress and further refine your developing skill-set, you’ll meet regularly with your own personal development coach throughout years 1 & 2.
