MA Journalism

MA Journalism sits within the Journalism and Publishing programme at London College of Communication.

The programme offers a dynamic range of courses that combine intellectual rigour and a strong focus on employability with a unique character stemming from their place in a creative arts university.

Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds across both the UK and the world. This diversity is actively showcased in their student work, publications and various industry projects.

Our courses are underpinned by a commitment to practice as a basis for developing skills, but we aren’t driven by a narrow focus on news – our provision reflects the contemporary environment of multi-platform journalism, and enables you to produce work in a range of genres and styles. At the heart of this is our Artefact multimedia publication, which is produced in a professional newsroom environment and includes a high-quality, full-colour magazine, a website, social media channels, podcasts and videos.

Employability is embedded through guest speakers and tutors, mentoring schemes, and our annual 'Meet the Experts' event, while we also help students to develop freelance and entrepreneurial skills. Postgraduate student work is regularly published in media outlets including the Guardian, Vice, Metro, Vogue, Huff Post, Dazed and Refinery 29.
