Future of Journalism

While looking at www.journalism.co.uk the other day my attention was drawn to an article regarding the introduction of a new online journalism course in Birmingham City University. What I found interesting was the clear progression of times and accompanying changes in the direction of journalism over the years, from paper to the world wide web. Is this new online approach the future for the news, the new direction this occupation will follow?

The MA is a one year long post-graduate course which focuses primarily on online news production. The course will follow a structure, which reflects the new conversational angle which today’s news follows.

The aim of the course is to help students use the journalistic skills they have developed in their under graduate course to their greatest potential. The course will be based on experimentation and will not rely on the models of any existing course. Bradshaw recognises that “Ultimately the industry is crying out for this and there’s clearly a demand for it.”

The prospect of news being distributed wholly online is becoming nearer to reality by the day!
