Nowadays, it could be argued there is no such thing as â??foreignâ?? news. Whether it is sport, leisure or entertainment, politics, crime or the economy, what is happening in one part of the world often affects not only neighbouring populations, but also distant corners of the globe, if not the whole world. We are often willing to consume multiple media channels 24/7/365 to keep abreast of what is happening globally. This shift towards global news has led to major changes within the media industry, over and above the rise of more flexible, digital platforms and the general decline in printed press. Many journalists are mobile or based in other countries, while news is reported in different countries and from different perspectives. This course aims to help you develop journalistic skills and knowledge in the context of global media. We aim to help you understand and report on our increasingly complex and globalised world, confident and capable of covering anything from socio-cultural to technological-scientific issues. Our teaching team include journalists, writers and media authors, with experience between them of working for journalism outlets in the UK, Europe, Australia, the USA, India, South Africa and Kenya. Course content is largely guided by the requirements of professional journalism training bodies, The Periodicals Training Council (PTC), Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) and National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ). It covers journalism theory, law and ethics, together with the practical techniques of research, interviewing, writing, page layout, audio/video production and online digital newsgathering and publishing platforms. There will be opportunities to work on â??liveâ?? projects, contributing articles to our magazine, which can be printed to order, together with mainstream and online media, as well as collaborative initiatives such as Global e-News Immersive Initiative or GENII, Pop-up Newsroom and Global News Relay. Previous students have covered international events, and for example, one recent student wrote a story on 2015 UNESCO General Conference in Paris for a leading newspaper in Kenya and East Africa.
