I mastered journalism theory by analysing news reports
Hello, everyone! I am Siyu Chen and I am a graduate of the University of Sheffield with MA Global Journalism. At present, I am studying for a PhD at the Centre for Women’s Studies, the University of York and my research area is about media and gender.
I really appreciate the precious year I spent at the Department of Journalism Studies in Sheffield because I gained a lot. From 2017 to 2018, I mastered a lot of news theory knowledge, analysed a lot of impressive news reports, and more importantly, I met many responsible teachers and lovely classmates.

Global Journalism MA graduate
Here, I not only won the valuable International Journalism Week competition opportunity and achieved a good result of the second prize, but also served as a poster translator for our International Journalism Week. These small achievements provided me with a valuable foundation for applying for a doctoral degree and helped me get a fully funded scholarship from the University of York.
For those who want to apply for MA Global Journalism at the University of Sheffield, I must say that you are making a wise choice! I hope that you can make full use of your precious time at the Department of Journalism Studies. Let a variety of courses bring you a broad perspective on journalism and help you get a brighter future.
