BA in Journalism
Explore what journalism is and where it is heading by enrolling in UCC’s BA Journalism course and develop your enquiring minds. Whether you want to report on the ground or across borders, you can learn to produce incisive, authorities and imaginative work and be the one to report tomorrow’s stories and find the answers to today’s questions.
You will be guided by staff with some 50 years of combined journalistic expertise who will get you practically grounded in print, radio, photo and online journalism.
This course will also explore the problems, pitfalls and potential for today’s journalism, studying its past and debating its future.
A major annual conference that examines the future of journalism will be hosted and your work will be featured alongside papers from senior media figures.
You can study this course as an ‘extended’ four-year course if you don’t meet the entry requirements, beginning with a foundation year which prepares you for a successful transition to the BA degree.
