Introduction

This programme aims to provide the professional and practical training needed for a career in the exciting world of journalism. It also offers an academically rigorous approach to critical analysis of the subject.

Students will have the opportunity to develop a hands-on, multiplatform perspective of the journalistic world, with the chance to specialise in a medium of their choice. An assessed work placement enables students to gain hands-on experience and there may also be the opportunity to hear from guest speakers who are leading names in the industry. Previous speakers have included the Head of ITN programmes for ITV news Richard Frediani; Editor-in-Chief (digital) of Empire magazine James Dyer; BBC Director of London 2012 Roger Mosey; and former Head of Channel 4 News Dorothy Byrne.

The School of English and Journalism maintains close working relationships with the BBC and Lincolnshire Echo newspaper. On campus, there are opportunities to gain experience in community radio, multiplatform websites, student newspapers, television, and magazines.

A Newsroom Environment

The teaching of journalism at Lincoln takes place in small groups within a newsroom setting, proving plenty of opportunities for one-to-one interaction with tutors. The programme has a careful balance of practical skills, using multi-platform media, and theory, providing students with the knowledge and intellectual skills needed to understand the world of modern journalism.
