O que eu aprenderei?

Welcome to MA Journalism (Science and Environment)

There is growing demand for science journalists who can report on health and environment issues accurately and succinctly. This Master's programme is designed to offer the practical and theoretical training needed for those wishing to communicate science and environmental issues to the public.

Students at Lincoln can learn how to take scientific news and turn it into engaging stories, without resorting to sensationalism or technical jargon. To develop their practical skills, students can gain experience working on the University-based community radio station, a multiplatform website, and student newspapers and magazines.

Students also have the opportunity to hear from leading names in the journalism industry. Previous speakers on the programme have included naturalist and broadcaster Chris Packham, ITV News science editor Tom Clarke, broadcaster and rural affairs correspondent Tom Heap, and former government chief scientific adviser Sir Mark Walport.

Those undertaking the programme are expected to complete an assessed work placement. Past students have worked at BBC Focus magazine, New Scientist, and the Vegan Society. Students are responsible for their travel, accommodation and general living costs while undertaking work placements.

How You Study

Students can learn in lectures, seminars, and practical workshops. This will incorporate newsdays which replicate industry newsrooms.

How You Are Assessed

Assessments are a mixture of essays, presentations, portfolios of journalism, broadcast media packages, and timed examinations.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly usually within 15 working days of the submission date.

Students on this programme are expected to complete an assessed work placement as part of the course.

Tutors can help with research of the employment market, help to arrange international, national, or local work placements, and support students as they build their individual career profile, CV, and work experience.

Please note that students are expected to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living expenses during their placement.
