This MA Multimedia Journalism (Print & Online) course at University of westminster offers a hands-on curriculum that allows you to develop your core journalistic skills in print, online and social media management.  

You will learn to master a broad variety of media formats from writing and reporting to social media and video. Besides writing, the course emphasises contemporary digital skills that will place you in high demand in an ever-changing world of content creation and distribution. These practical skills are underpinned with training in media law, ethics and regulation. 

Whether your passion is current affairs, arts and culture, investigative features, travel, fashion, sport – or you are still deciding, our aim is to help you to find your first job in journalism. 

We assist students to get work placements during the course, provide career advice, arrange media networking events and keep close contact with potential employers.

There is a strong emphasis on learning through 'hands-on' practice, in small class groups. Most of your assessed coursework will be 'real' journalism assignments and you will take part in a number of mock newsdays. 

As well as regular classes taught by experienced journalists on our staff, we also invite other media professionals as guest speakers or to critique student work. 

You will have the chance to air your work on Smoke Radio, the University's multi-award-winning internet radio station, or post items onto the MA's own news site, Westminster World.

The course is taught over two semesters, and for the Master’s students is followed by the largely self-directed final project in the summer. Unlike many other journalism MAs, you can undertake an extensive practical Final Project. This could be a TV or radio documentary or a digital project. 

This MA can be taken as a part-time course (daytime) over two years studying two days a week after initial more intense orientation weeks
