The web represents one of the newest and most exciting areas of journalism and one in which an increasing number of job opportunities are becoming available.
Our Web courses concentrate on the journalistic fundamentals, but will also give you added skills suitable for working in an online environment.
You will learn how to search out information and conduct interviews, how to use your news judgment to evaluate stories, and how to organise and structure the material you have garnered and present it in an engaging and informative way.
You will learn how to build a website, how to construct stories in a web-friendly manner, and how to ake advantage of the multi-media aspects of the web such as video and audio.
You'll work with students from the other applied journalism courses on integrated projects replicating the multi-platform publishing now central for most media companies.
We offer a work placement module that will allow you to gain vocational experience while you study and University Studentships.
