Course Description

Join a global effort to inform and connect people around the world through Scotland’s leading journalism master’s programme – GCU’s MA Multimedia Journalism. GCU offers the only postgraduate journalism degree in Scotland that is accredited by both of the UK’s primary professional training bodies: the National Council for the Training of Journalists and the Broadcast Journalism Training Council.

The MA Multimedia Journalism boasts a more than 75% employment rate, placements in media organisations including the BBC, STV and the Herald and Times Group, and more Scottish Student Journalism Awards than any other master’s course. Prepare to make a real impact in a rapidly changing media landscape.

You’ll study in Glasgow, Scotland’s ‘media city’, and get hands-on experience with all of the in-demand skills of today, from interviewing and reporting to writing and editing – across print, broadcast and digital platforms. We’ll train you in shorthand, photography, video production and web content management, and give you in-depth instruction in government and law.

You’ll learn in modern, industry-standard and purpose-built facilities, including a multimedia newsroom, editorial and radio production suites, digital radio studios, and a TV studio and gallery. In addition, you’ll benefit from GCU’s close relationship with industry through work placement agreements with major news organisations across Scotland. Our graduates complete their MA Multimedia Journalism programme with the skills they need to compete in a constantly transforming industry and contribute to the common good – whether they choose employment in the UK or abroad.
