Introdução

MA Journalism (War and International Human Rights) focuses on the study of war reporting and international human rights. It provides an opportunity to analyse the role of the news media and journalism in conflicts, peace efforts, and human rights.

This challenging postgraduate programme offers students the chance to gain hands-on experience in print, broadcast and online media, and is designed to help students develop the practical and intellectual skills necessary for a career in the media. The final project enables students to focus on a specific area of journalism, war and international human rights.

The School of English and Journalism maintains close working relationships with the BBC and Lincolnshire Echo newspaper. On campus, there are opportunities to gain experience in community radio, multiplatform websites, student newspapers, television, and magazines.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.
