Digital News and Media


Digital News and Media degrees

Accurate, credible and democratic journalism has never been more important. The rise of citizen journalism and fake news has changed the media landscape and crowded social media with questionable reporting.

If you want to tell the real story, the one that tells the public what they need to know, we can show you how. On our Digital News and Media degrees you will be learning how to create compelling content from the very first week. You won’t just talk about digital media and journalism, you’ll be learning practical skills in writing, video and audio editing, graphic creation and content management.

Discover how to tell a story across all media platforms, from the page to the screen, and learn how to produce industry-standard work, and build your portfolio, before you step into the workplace.
