About the programme

This programme enables you to rehearse both your craft skills and critical faculties in accordance with a new professionalism where thinking ‘out of the box’ is routinely required. Experienced journalists and editors cover the craft of magazine writing and publishing, the history of magazines, and the changing role of magazines in the lives of their readers.

All students taking MA Magazines will do two core modules, an option, a module introducing research methods in media practice and an independent practical-theoretical project (dissertation in media practice) – this last to be submitted at the end of the summer.

Career opportunities

Destinations for graduates include magazine journalism, advertising, publishing, PR, branding, corporate communications and other creative industries.
