Program overview

A degree in Journalism Studies from the University of Stirling equips you with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge you’ll need to make a mark in this rapidly-evolving arena. With over 30 years of experience in researching and teaching journalism, the University of Stirling has established a reputation as one of the UK’s top institutions in the field. This course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of journalism, and offers an in-depth, critical understanding of the practice. You’ll work individually and in groups to write articles and prepare portfolios; create pages for print and online news; produce and edit visuals; and contribute to class blogs. Everything you do will deepen your understanding of how professional journalists operate across broadcast, online and print media – and by the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to take your place among them. Guest lecturers from the media regularly visit the University to share their knowledge with you directly, and respected broadcaster Jon Snow has described our media department as “a breed apart”. Join us to fulfil your ambitions in journalism, and you’ll soon find out why.
