Journalism degrees abroad

Journalism is the reporting of events and current affairs that matter to a given audience. Studying journalism abroad will give you insight into how it varies across the world and using different media. You can learn about broadcast, print and digital journalism focusing on how these mediums developed and their future.

Journalism program structure

In the US liberal arts model you would study journalism as part of your bachelor’s degree, focusing on it as a major or minor. For this you will need to spend a set number of credits on journalism specific modules. At master’s level you are able to study journalism as a stand alone subject. In the UK however, you are able to study journalism as a degree by itself at all levels of study.

When deciding on where to study journalism it’s important to consider the practical experience offered by a university, for example journalism internships, placements or work experience. Another consideration will be the access to facilities that a university has such as radio studios, and filming equipment.

Depending on your program, Journalism degrees usually involve practical classes using a mixture of broadcast equipment and writing. There will also be lectures, seminars, tutorials and personal study time.

The structure and content of a journalism program will be very different depending on the country and specific university you are studying in. Some of the modules and electives you may study journalism in include the following:

  • Media law
  • Journalism and society
  • Storytelling
  • Journalism and ethics
  • Broadcast journalism
  • Journalism and photography
