Master's Degree in Journalism for Literature, Communication and Humanities

Introduction

The Master's degree in Journalism for Literature, Communication and Humanities is both academic and professionally orientated and offers profound consideration of the essential training in the humanities that students of Journalism and Audiovisual Communication aquire during their bachelor's degrees, and allows that training to converge in the specialisation of Literary Journalism, aimed at students who was to specialise in the knowledge, research and practice of quality literary journalism and its fictitous and factual neighbouring modalities. Our proposal involves the re-design of an existing Master's degree programme in Communication, Journalism and Humanities. The reason for this is to create a more precise profile for both the subject areas covered by the Master's degree and the kind of students that this course is aimed at.


The Master's degree also offers quality postgraduate training to humanities and social science students who want to build bridges between their original training and the problems inherent in the field of communication, while develop aptitudes in each of the proposed specialist areas.
