The MAMSc in Digital Journalism is a collaborative programme across the Departments of Media & Communications and Computing at Goldsmiths, and is based in the newly launched Centre for Creative and Social Technology (CAST). We are the only programme in the UK that combines teaching from both Computing and Media in developing digital journalists. Every student on our MAMSc will prepare for future job opportunities on guaranteed projects and internship placements with one of our Innovation partners. Our students will be able to enter organisations and hit the ground running to solve problems and innovate using that unique hybrid skill set of journalism fundamentals and creative technology capacities that everyone seeks. Applicants should be determined to explore critical and entrepreneurial approaches and be enthusiastic about in-depth and hands-on experimentation with innovations in journalism. As part of this exciting new research centre, students will have access to state of the art facilities and emergent creative and social technologies. The MAMSc in Digital Journalism educates aspiring or mid-career professionals seeking to retain the fundamentals of quality, credibility, and transparency that define journalism whilst pushing boundaries and transforming its craft and practice. Our programme provides graduates with real-world technical, design, and software skills to innovate in journalism (the 'How') global awareness of the potential and possibilities for the next and future waves of digital media (the 'What') and critical awareness of the implications and applications of journalism in society (the 'Why'). With its unique inclusion of real software, design, and code training in Computing, complemented by fundamentals of news writing, media law, and multimedia production, the MAMSc in Digital Journalism seeks to redefine journalistic practice for digital media. Our students will become proficient in the intersections of: * Journalism Fundamentals, Law and Ethics * Computing skills (coding, hardwaresoftware, data, digital methods) * Multimedia skills (photography, video, audio) What you study: Students without a technical background will be encouraged to take our pre-session 'Technology Bootcamp' in September 2011 to gain a basic literacy in digital fundamentals. The degree consists of courses taught by both Departments in a truly interdisciplinary and collaborative style. Core Courses in Media introduce you to Digital News Writing, Multimedia Production and Media Law. Core Computing modules include Digital Case Studies featuring industry guests, extensive training and experimentation time in the Digital Sandbox (lab) developing a capability and literacy in Computer Science and Design, and Digital Research Methods for scraping social networks, conducting investigative reports, and project management. In the final practical project you will undertake a significant written and digital research project in consultation with a supervisor. These projects will often connect to work completed on guaranteed internship placements with industry partners.
