Multimedia journalism

**Overview**

Truth-seekers and storytellers apply here. If you want to make a difference in the world, hold power to account, and find out what’s really going on, then this is the course for you. As a future journalist, you’ll be fascinated by the world around you, have a determination to succeed and excellent communication skills. We’ll teach you how to find and research stories for TV, radio, social media and online. You’ll learn investigative skills and how to find and use data. You’ll learn about the political structures that deliver the public services, and you’ll practice inclusive journalism, working with diverse communities to help them tell their stories. Importantly you’ll also learn about UK media law so you can do the job professionally. Journalists need to hold power to account so have a strong focus on asking the tough questions of those who make, and sometimes break, the law.

**About**

On this Broadcast and Multimedia Journalism degree, you’ll be taught by lecturers with extensive and recent experience of journalism and broadcasting. You'll learn core journalistic skills such as story finding, researching, writing, audio and video recording and editing, presentation skills, interviewing, news package production, court reporting, longer programme making, data and investigative journalism and website production. You’ll develop an understanding of media regulation and law including court reporting, defamation, privacy, copyright and other legal constraints.

Some of your modules will be taught on campus, but much of your teaching will take place at our dedicated media centre in the heart of Norwich, ‘Broadcast House.’ We are based in the former studios of Radio Broadland and Heart Radio in the centre of this attractive and newsworthy city. The building was refitted by UEA in 2021 and is home to three purpose built soundproofed studios, equipped with a radio studio, a TV studio, and a flexible space. We also have a 24-seat newsroom with Adobe Audition, Premier Pro and Burli workstations, and modern TV gallery. The best journalistic work by students will be published on the UEA Journalism website.

You’ll complete 15 days of assessed industry placement (or an industry engagement portfolio) as an essential part of your course. You'll also participate in at least 15 newsdays in both years 2 and 3, which will prepare you for life as a working journalist, closely mirroring practice within professional broadcast or online newsrooms.

From the moment you enter the UEA newsroom, your tutors will work alongside and encourage you to maximise your potential.
