As well as gaining practical broadcast and journalistic skills, you will develop the ability to reflect critically on the nature and limitations of news coverage. Key issues in news and media studies will be covered and also legal and ethical concerns for media professionals. You will practice interviewing, reporting and video production and learn how to produce and structure broadcast and online news stories. The course is supported by the EU “SeaMedia” project, which provides a public platform for student work.
