Journalism

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Journalism refers to gathering, organizing, and presenting information in a written or broadcast form. Journalists are writers and communicators who ask the important and sometimes uncomfortable questions to help individuals make sense of the events unfolding around them both locally and internationally.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
