Journalism Project (010P3)

60 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

All year

This independent study module involves the completion of a critical journalism project on a topic of your choice. The module offers you the chance to work independently with guidance and advice from an appropriate tutor appointed as a project supervisor.

You are expected to demonstrate how your ideas and knowledge have developed over the year and how these ideas inform your professional work experience. You will develop a portfolio of your journalism and reflect on this process in the associated learning diary and essay.
