The MA/MSc in Digital Journalism is a collaborative programme across the Departments of Media & Communications and Computing at Goldsmiths, and is based in the newly launched Centre for Creative and Social Technology (CAST). We are the only programme in the UK that combines teaching from both computing and media in developing digital journalists.


Every student on our MA/MSc will prepare for future job opportunities on guaranteed projects and internship placements with one of our Innovation partners. Our students will be able to enter organisations and hit the ground running to solve problems and innovate using that unique hybrid skill set of journalism fundamentals and creative technology capacities that everyone seeks. Applicants should be determined to explore critical and entrepreneurial approaches and be enthusiastic about in-depth and hands-on experimentation with innovations in journalism.

As part of this exciting new research centre, students will have access to state of the art facilities and emergent creative and social technologies. The MA/MSc in Digital Journalism educates aspiring or mid-career professionals seeking to retain the fundamentals of quality, credibility, and transparency that define journalism whilst pushing boundaries and transforming its craft and practice.

Our programme provides graduates with real-world technical, design, and software skills to innovate in journalism (the 'How'); global awareness of the potential and possibilities for the next and future waves of digital media (the 'What'); and critical awareness of the implications and applications of journalism in society (the 'Why'). With its unique inclusion of real software, design, and code training in Computing, complemented by fundamentals of news writing, media law, and multimedia production, the MA/MSc in Digital Journalism seeks to redefine journalistic practice for digital media.

Our students will become proficient in the intersections of:

* Journalism Fundamentals, Law and Ethics

* Computing skills (coding, hardware/software, data, digital methods)

* Multimedia skills (photography, video, audio)


You should have an undergraduate degree of at least upper second-class standard. Applicants with significant work experience and/or a professional qualification in a computing, digital technology or social science-related subject are encouraged. If your first language is not English, you normally need a minimum overall score of 7.0 in IELTS and must score 7.0 or higher in the written part of the test.
