This far-reaching journalism degree combines research on media practice and freedom around the world with some practical newswriting experience and events. Students have recently visited BBC studios and conferences, and collaborated with the European Parliament. Join up and you’ll look at journalism within the context of globalisation, comparing and contrasting media practice around the world, immersed in vital discussions around the relationship between media, society and government – at a hugely critical moment for freedom of expression.
