What will I learn?

This programme combines the latest in media, communications and audience theory, and research methodologies with the production and editorial skills that are required of the modern journalist. You can apply your understanding of the role of the media in society to your own journalistic output.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • You will be taught by members of the Glasgow Media Group, which has an international reputation for pioneering research methods in media and communications.
  • The Glasgow Media Group comprises industry-trained programme-makers and the programme includes a practical element related to transferable skills for employability.
  • The city of Glasgow is the centre of the media industry in Scotland and is home to the headquarters of BBC Scotland, STV and a range of major press titles including The Herald and The Daily Record. The Media Group has strong connections with local industry.
  • Researchers from the Glasgow Media Group have presented their work globally, given expert evidence to Westminster select committees and appear regularly on the BBC and other news outlets.
  • You can choose optional courses from areas such as economics, criminology, human rights, sociology, and politics whose research is at the forefront of debates about the role of the media in society.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The programme is aimed at those interested in pursuing careers in the public domain (journalism, public relations, factual TV and radio, government bodies, voluntary organisations, museums) where skills in media and communications are essential. However, a working and critical knowledge of media and communications is increasingly desirable in areas as diverse as health, education and finance.
