Journalism Diploma Course Overview

 

The Journalism and Media Diploma course is designed for newcomers and will also appeal to individuals working in Journalism, public relations, marketing communications or as information officers who wish to gain a broader appreciation of the principles and practice of journalism. Successful students will receive an internationally recognised award from CMI

  

The course satisfies the highest standards expected of journalists, covering both print and broadcast journalism.

You will develop your investigative ability which is essential if you wish to be a good reporter.

The principles of good editing, design and print production will be explored. The different types of law relevant to media specifically in Ireland and the UK will be examined as well as areas such as defamation.
