Digital technology is profoundly changing journalism, with innovations like hyperlocal news and mobile media reporting becoming increasingly prevalent. This course is designed to equip you with the necessary skills to produce multimedia news and features. You’ll develop sound analytical, ethical and entrepreneurial skills in order to perform at a high level in the digital media world.

We aim to produce high quality, fresh-thinking graduates who have a passion to communicate and can articulate their ideas through effective story-telling.

You’ll also: pursue real-life stories; produce your own journalism packages; experiment with entrepreneurial projects; and report, write and edit using text, pictures, video and audio to tell multimedia stories effectively.
