What will I learn?

Course overview

MA Fashion Journalism is a well-established course that has been designed for graduates/professionals who wish to explore the changing face of fashion journalism, whether that be from an academic, consumer or entrepreneurial perspective.

The course offers a proactive approach to the rapidly changing global landscape that challenges the role of the fashion media and examines how, as a practitioner, you can successfully disseminate an editorial message within it. In the light of globalisation and numerous ongoing controversies surrounding the fashion industry, the course examines several sociological and ethical issues that are emerging for journalists and content creators.

Students are encouraged to challenge the current fashion system and develop disruptive editorial strategies that could potentially have both social and politically active outcomes. Focusing on both the written word and the curated fashion image, the course teaches expertise in both commercial content creation and traditional journalism as well as publishing; in short, how to be a commentator, editor and entrepreneur, both digitally and in print.

Career paths

Master's graduates have an acknowledged advantage in the employment market, obtaining work in a wide range of vocational and academic fields related to fashion. Previous MA Fashion Journalism graduates are now working in areas such as magazine and newspaper journalism, magazine styling and image making, lecturing in cultural studies and researching and developing concepts for television.

The MA also provides an excellent preparation for higher level research degrees (MPhil or PhD), with an increasing number of graduates undertaking research in fashion related subjects, in practice or theory or entering education as lecturers.
