Want to write for radio and television news? We'll show you how to find stories and turn them into sharp, engaging material.
You'll shoot professional news pieces on HD TV cameras and use Apple Fine Cut X to cut rushes together. We also teach you how to create audio and video for the web and how to use social media effectively.
There are lectures, seminars, group workshops, individual and team assignments. You're assessed on essays, exams and journalism – news stories, radio and TV news items and features, web pages and portfolios.
On a three-day field trip to London, you'll visit national news organisations and meet senior editors, politicians and political journalists. Our guest lecturers come from the media, campaigning groups and research institutes. Broadcast editors run radio and television newsdays.
