Print Journalism Course



Print Journalism

  Online Course

If you enjoy investigating, like to get to the bottom of things, are happiest when you have confirmed that you are right, get a thrill putting fingers on a keyboard and positively adore the idea that your name (your byline) could appear on blogs and newspaper articles (online and print), then you should seriously consider a career in print journalism.

This is also the only course which will launch your career when you graduate. Your final assignment is a story which has been researched, written and presented by you, for publication as a guest blogger on the Irish Academy’s website.

Immerse yourself in the world of Journalism and find your own path into a dynamic, fast-paced communications career.

Through a series of 15 practical, interactive and up-to-date modules, you will learn all the tricks of the trade and you’ll be ready for whatever journalism career comes your way. For each module, you ‘ll be asked to complete one or more assignments. We will continually test the new skills you’ve developed.

Our diploma in journalism gives you professional insight, opinions and advice that are crucial for anyone working as a journalist. You will learn essential writing tips, interviewing techniques and reporting skills. A big part of the course is learning different styles for the platforms that journalists use.

At the end of the course, through your final dissertation, you get to decide what road your Journalism career will go down by specialising. Whether your topic expertise is in sports, music, entertainment, politics, or  fashion, we will help you write a dissertation that makes your expertise glow. Your dissertation is also written as a blog, showcasing your knowledge and expertise, and is published on the Academy’s website, reaching an international audience  and giving you an immediate start in your new Print Journalism career!
