This innovative programme in multimedia journalism, accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council, developed by Newcastle University and the Press Association, combines university study with vocational training in a real-world commercial publishing environment. Teaching is shared between the University and the Press Association, giving you the chance to be taught by professionals who train journalists for regional, national and international media organisations.
In 2011 the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) declared the MA in International Multimedia Journalism “the best performing commercial fast track course of 2010-2011”. The programme also received a further award in 2011 from the Broadcast Journalism Training Council for ‘excellence in teaching and innovation’.
The programme is suitable for graduates and experienced journalists. Graduates have the opportunity to develop their practical skills in journalism and public relations (PR) and to undertake analyses of the social, economic and cultural contexts of the media. Trained journalists can use the programme to develop a sophisticated analysis of the role of the media in today’s global society and to acquire cutting-edge practical skills in a range of media technologies.
