Advisory Board

In March 2016 the Department of Journalism Studies convened an Advisory Board comprising influential figures from the media industry and the research community.

The Advisory Board arriving into a class to see what's happening and meet the students.

Together they offer a powerful range of perspectives and insight which will play a key role in retaining our position as the UK's number 1 journalism department.

The Advisory Board's functions are to

  • provide advice and support to the department in relation to its teaching, research and contribution to society
  • provide advice on the overall direction and objectives of the department in the light of changes in the media industry
