You’ll gain detailed knowledge and understanding of the key historical, political, economic, social and cultural contexts of the news media, as well as developing the vital knowledge of media law required for broadcasting.
You’ll learn how to write for the broadcast media, as well as developing transferable multi-media skills relevant for broadcast journalism and other news-related communication fields.
Experience is crucial, so you’ll put your broadcast journalism skills into practice by completing professional work placements in each year of your degree. This will include live broadcasting for Bradford Community Radio and TV reporting for our news magazine show Yorkshire Voice.
You’ll also have the opportunity to gain additional work experience in your final year with our Professional Learning through Work module, which involves working with an employer on a live, long-term project.
Our course is highly valued by employers thanks to its Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) accreditation, which recognises its relevance and responsiveness to the operational demands of the broadcast industry.
Following the course, you will be qualified to study at postgraduate level in areas such as MA Journalism, which we provide here at Leeds Trinity.
