This course is one of our comprehensive suite of specialist journalism courses that lead to both an honours degree and an NCTJ Diploma in Journalism. This combination of qualifications will significantly boost your employability as a journalist.
You can increase your practical experience by taking on reporting, editing and/or managerial roles on NEFashion – our student-run website covering fashion across the North East.
In the final year, you will produce your own fashion magazine or website, plus carry out a work placement on a fashion publication.
All our teaching staff have worked as senior journalists. Teaching is enhanced by our department’s cutting-edge research, of which a high percentage has been ranked world leading or internationally excellent by the Research Assessment Exercise.
Facilities at our Media Centre are excellent and 95% of our journalism students have been able to access specialised equipment when they needed to, according to the National Student Survey.
Right from the start, you’ll notice Sunderland’s supportive atmosphere. We make sure that it’s easy to receive advice from tutors and there are daily ‘drop-in’ sessions staffed by a rota of professional journalists.
