Course Description

Journalism is an exciting occupation that allows you to meet many different kinds of people and to travel. The basis of journalism is information - discovering, collecting, assembling, analysing and presenting information. To do this effectively, journalists require highly developed skills in language, a good understanding of the media, an interest in current affairs and a broad general knowledge. By also studying the BA, students graduate with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding. The BA allows students to choose from a wide variety of majors to either complement their journalism studies (such as Economics, International Relations, Public Policy or Popular Music) or to broaden their knowledge in another field (such as a language, Criminology or Psychology), thus expanding their opportunities to work in different areas of journalism.
