Advanced Broadcast Journalism

Module code: JNL6017

This module allows students to build on the basic broadcast journalism skills of semester 1. Students will produce work that is journalistically and technically more complex across a greater variety of radio and television formats. Broadcast news features will be self-generated and students will also have the opportunity to make radio and television news programmes covering a range of formats and styles.

The module will also consider the increasing importance of websites run by broadcast organisations. It will introduce students to the multimedia skills they will need to produce digital content.
