At UCLan we’ve been teaching postgraduate journalism for more than thirty years. We are proud of our history - and we are still leading the way with our innovative MA Broadcast Journalism programme. The course has a reputation for the quality of its students and their success in obtaining employment in the industry.
The programme is accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council and we’re committed to producing broadcast journalists with the technical and practical journalism skills to work successfully in a modern digitalised newsroom. The emphasis is on ‘learning by doing’. You will learn in a newsroom environment, producing interviews, stories, reports and packages for radio, television and digital platforms. You will experience live location reporting, filming, editing and also learn the latest digital and social media skills from experts based in our Media Innovation Studio. You will also gain a thorough understanding of media law and public administration.
Our enviable list of alumni gives us an unrivalled network of contacts who not only return to the university to give guest lectures and master-classes but also inform and influence our teaching through their professional expertise and advice. Our alumni are generous in providing work placement opportunities to our current students. So, if you are determined to have the best possible start to your professional career, make us your first choice.
|Level||RQF Level 7|
You will normally be expected to have an upper second or first class honours degree from a British higher education institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification. The degree may be in any subject, although complementary subjects, such as English, Politics or a foreign language are especially useful. You will also need a very good standard of written English and in normal circumstances, a good speaking voice. Mature students and candidates with non-standard qualifications may also apply, if they have substantial professional/relevant experience. All applicants are expected to show knowledge, enthusiasm and commitment, which may be demonstrated by a record of relevant work experience.
Candidates for whom English is not the mother tongue, should be able to demonstrate high standards, at IELTS 7.5 or equivalent, in all four elements of reading, writing, speaking and listening. The focus of the course is the UK broadcast industry, and includes UK law and public administration.
