Journalism

Journalism

Journalism today means having the skills to gather, write and present information across a variety of media platforms - newspapers and magazines, TV, radio, online and on social media. As well as writing and reporting, some courses include learning how to use production equipment (in university-based TV studios and radio stations), and industry-level computer software, such as for video editing. Some courses specialise in sport, fashion, music or magazine journalism.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
