Why study MA News Journalism at NTU?
We are recognised as one of the top journalism schools in the UK, with prestigious guest speakers, extensive industry links and input from leading journalists and editors from publications across the country.
Graduates from MA News Journalism have gone on to work for the BBC, ITN, Sky News, and national and regional newspapers across the country. As well as working as newspaper reporters, news editors, broadcast journalists and sub-editors, many graduates have secured media related positions in PR, marketing, promotions and advertising.
This course prepares you to work in an editorial team to supply material across a multi-platform newsroom. You will seek out original stories, conduct incisive interviews and produce crisp and engaging copy. You will train to be what Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez calls the best job in the world – a journalist.
NTU Alumni Discount
As a current or previous NTU undergraduate student you will benefit from our Alumni Discount scheme.
