Regent's University London

Course Introduction

The MA Fashion Journalism is an ideal progression for students who wish to build on a bachelor’s education in fashion, but also for those with a bachelor’s degree in a discipline other than fashion who may wish to move into fashion and specifically in to the specialist field of fashion journalism.

The programme will prepare you to embark on your career within Fashion Journalism with a good understanding of current developments at the forefront of the industry, while nurturing your ability to enter a world of journalism that is evolving very quickly. The programme will develop journalists who are independent in their thinking and who will welcome the challenge of a fast'moving environment in a state of flux.

The MA will explore traditional journalism and newer forms of journalism. You will strengthen your ability to approach evolving landscapes and digital platforms as well as niche print zines with a fluid approach and a spirit of exploration. While the programme will enable you to work in fashion journalism, it will acknowledge the interconnectedness of fashion with its closely related industries including art, graphics, product design, furniture and interior design, marketing and brand strategy, architecture, music and performance and wider contexts including entrepreneurial business and community projects.

You will have the opportunity to travel to other fashion capitals and one fashion study trip is included in the cost of your programme, ensuring an international perspective on the fashion industry and on your specialist area. You will take part in the study trip alongside other fashion master’s students. You may also have the opportunity to take additional, optional, fashion study trips with your fellow students.

Through the programme you will engage with the community, reporting on subjects which are brave and demand exploring. In line with developments in fashion journalism, the programme uses fashion as a starting point to explore new avenues of interest to the increasingly sophisticated and global 21st century audience. The programme educates journalists who lead rather than to merely follow the crowd.
