BA (Hons) Journalism with Photography

A picture tells a thousand words. We have teamed up with Marjon and developed a partnership approach to undertaking your studies. With this degree, you can learn creative approaches to journalism and photography and ‘make a difference’.

Course Summary

Reporting the news accurately and with a passion for the truth is essential in turbulent political times. On the BA (Hons) Journalism with Photography programme you’ll work with the other journalism students, learning all the relevant skills of modern journalism, but with a ‘distinct focus’ on photography (led by Fotonow with a creative industry approach). Within modern media, editors are aware that the right picture sells a story and are looking for people with the right skillset to capture this. To help you develop those skills we’ve developed a partnership approach with Marjon – a university with an excellent track-record and socially rooted courses. You will also develop powerful writing, editing, film-making and people skills, which will mean you are in demand.

What might you become?

You might become a journalist or photo-journalist working locally, nationally or internationally, with a particular focus on telling stories through photography. Your skills would be transferable to many industries but particularly marketing or events.
