The Journalism with Integrated Foundation Year BA (Hons) is a four-year version of the BA (Hons) Journalism course, with an integrated foundation year. This degree programme offers a broad and comprehensive suite of specialist journalism courses that lead to both an honours degree and the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism, the nationally recognised industry entry qualification. The first year, which is the foundation year, will include 4 study modules; a subject-related module, a numeracy skills module, a study skills-related module called 'Succeeding at University and Beyond' and a foundation project module. After completion of this foundation year, students will then move onto the Journalism honours degree course. On the Journalism degree course, students will be introduced to different types of journalism. During the second and third years, students will study topics in more depth, among them Multi-Platform News, Media Law and Media Ethics. Students can also choose an option in a specific genre such as Magazine Writing, Sports Writing, Investigative Journalism, or Entertainments and Games Journalism. In the final year, students will go on a placement to a newspaper or online news organisation and each student will undertake a project, a large-scale piece of journalism.
