This programme combines the study of a modern language with development of journalistic skills relevant to a wide range of professional contexts. Not only will students become highly competent in their chosen language but students will also gain advanced knowledge of the cultures and societies of the countries in which the language is spoken. The journalism modules are taught by industry professionals with experience not only in how to write for different media and audiences, but also in how the industry works. By the end of the programme students will have developed high-level journalistic skills, and an understanding of the cultural, political and industrial contexts of journalism. Students will also have the opportunity to study a number of cross-cultural modules which will allow you to explore specific themes across a variety of language-speaking areas. The third year is normally spent abroad at a partner institution to allow them to develop their language skills and their knowledge of the culture of the language-speaking area they are studying.
