Magazine Editor/Freelance Writer
What did you like about the course?
I loved the opportunity to discuss and engage critically with various aspects of sporting culture. Analysing a variety of important issues and placing them into a wider sociological framework was a hugely enjoyable way to learn.
How did the course help you in your chosen profession?
Naturally, the media and journalism modules were beneficial in allowing me to gain insights into an industry I wanted to become part of. The ability to take a given subject, form an opinion and communicate it to others is a fundamental process in journalism – and something this course encourages in abundance.
The opportunity to find a work placement during second year eventually led to the full-time position I hold today. Again, I found that the honing of various creative and communicative skills while at university helped to complement my development as a writer.
