Instruction in: English
Course Code: 4JRNL001W
Course Details: Level 200
Recommended Semester Credits: 4


This module introduces students to the principles and practices of journalism and the various roles and
responsibilities of journalists. Students learn about the news media landscape in the UK and across the world, with a
particular focus on technological change and how this has affected traditional organizations, publications and
channels. The key aim of the module is to build students’ multimedia literacy, to help them begin to consume news
and journalism as a professional media creative rather than as a simple consumer. Students are also introduced to
media law and the various codes that attempt to define ethical journalistic practice. At the end of the module
students are encouraged to think about the kind of journalism they want to practice in the future, developing in the
process a career/personal development plan they will refer back to as they progress on the course.
