LJMU's International Journalism MA develops your thinking and improves your ability to analyse and evaluate news media, reaching a true understanding of its importance.

  • Study in Liverpool Screen School, an influential element of the North West's creative and media sector
  • Develop the industry knowledge required for progression in this highly competitive industry
  • Follow a curriculum that develops critical analysis
  • Benefit from strong industry links to the BBC, Trinity Mirror, Lime Pictures, FACT and BAFTA

International Journalism is the first course aimed at developing critical analysis on the international stage for practitioners and those with a serious interest in this field. The programme concentrates on journalism with international relations and is suitable for students from abroad as well as those from the UK.

The course is designed so that if you have no experience you will receive basic training in journalism practice. If you already have journalistic skills, you will be able to concentrate on analysing the craft and your own part in it. In this way, the programme will develop your ability to critically analyse the purpose and structure of journalism and to evaluate the processes and products of either your own or other people's work.

A truly international city with a thriving journalism industry, Liverpool is a great place to study journalism. The city has one of the country's largest and most successful evening newspapers (the Liverpool Echo) as well as a flourishing magazine industry. There are also several television companies in Liverpool such as the BBC, Granada TV and Lime Pictures (formerly Mersey TV), creators of Brookside and Hollyoaks.
