MA Arts and Lifestyle Journalism will equip you with the advanced skills you'll need for a successful career in journalism. This covers journalism about art and mass and popular culture including painting, music, photography, literature, cinema, travel, and tells stories about societal changes that reflect the ways in which we live, work and see ourselves. You'll be taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant and Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).
Why choose this course at London College of Communication
• This is the only arts and lifestyle journalism course in the country. • It is a multimedia course committed to explore experimentation and creativity within journalism; we are not a news journalism course. • Graduates have gone on to work in established media, for places such as The Guardian, Wallpaper, Hole and Corner and Artnet, amongst others. • We place emphasis on learning practical skills and developing a personal voice, informed by reflection and critical theory. • The course is part of the Media School at LCC; you'll benefit from being part of a community that spans the disciplines of publishing, advertising, public relations, media communications, photography, and journalism.
