Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

This future-focused MA combines computing and media and communications to reflect digital journalism at its most current. It?s really important for students with a set of core digital journalism skills so half of the degree focuses on the computing side of the discipline and half on media and communications.

This means students get a holistic MA, where they study the foundations of digital journalism and practise it in its most current forms. Students will have the chance to study multimedia and interactive journalism, look at interactive documentaries, digital reporting, and video journalism. Students will also learn coding, so they can get to grips with using algorithms and data sets, and do social network analysis to monitor what?s going on behind the screens.

Our graduates have gone on to work within diverse roles from delivering communications for UNICEF in Bangladesh, to creating content for Rolling Stone magazine in New York.
