What is Master of Arts Journalism?

The MA in Journalism is a one-year, full-time programme covering the practice and theory of journalism. It ranges from the basics of journalistic craft to consideration of the part that journalists play in society. A fundamental principle behind the course is the belief that good journalism, produced by reflective, critical practitioners, is crucial in a democracy. The programme seeks to produce journalists who are multi-skilled and critically aware, and have a good understanding of the role of journalism in society. The programme includes tuition, practical experience, a wide range of assignments, seminars, tutorials, group projects, independent study and research. It is an MA programme; students must engage fully in the critical and theoretical parts of course.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
