The global journalism and media community faces challenging times. Whilst the global economic crisis still affects job security, technological advances require innovative approaches to news production, and evolving political situations around the world provide journalists with the opportunity to shape new national futures.
Edinburgh Napier University is launching a unique Masters specifically tailored to meet the requirements of modern journalists and media professionals. “MA International Journalism for Media Professionals” provides students with the opportunity to develop leadership attributes, to explore innovative forms of media practice, to enhance their global mobility and to expand the scope of their professional expertise.
The programme is delivered mainly through distance learning, with a flexible programme structure that enables professionals to study whilst they work and to tailor assignments to meet their individual learning requirements.
Students join a community of fellow media professionals around the world as they engage in a global virtual class- and newsroom environment with topics that include cross-platform journalism, leadership and entrepreneurship, global current affairs, professional practice across cultures, investigative journalism, reporting business and finance and producing documentary films.
Edinburgh Napier University was amongst the first to provide journalism education in the UK several decades ago. Our highly respected BA (Hons) Journalism and MA Journalism both have a reputation for excellence and high graduate employability.
Our journalism courses are accredited by the BJTC (Broadcast Journalism Training Council) and PTC (Periodicals Training Council) and are associated with Screen Academy Scotland, one of only two Academies in the UK to hold both Skillset Film- and Skillset Media Academy status.
