The Journalism element of this course will provide you with practical skills to work as a journalist or researcher, or in related communications jobs such as those in public relations. You will be well placed to progress to postgraduate study in journalism or in a wide range of other areas. Students have found employment in the following areas: radio presenting, both local and national, media research, journalism, event organising, media planning, television, theatre, marketing, public relations, campaigns, teaching and further study.
The Politics element will enable you to demonstrate an interest in the fast-changing world and will provide you with the ability to generate ideas, show initiative and communicate with people from all walks of life. Our students have a good record of gaining employment, and Politics graduates work in many different sectors including teaching, the police, the probation service, housing, the civil service, local government and planning, as well as pressure groups, voluntary organisations, charities, the media, journalism and social work. During your time at Worcester you will have the opportunity to experience subject-related work experience and volunteering activities. You can choose to take a Politics work experience module, spend time working with an organisation such as a local council, or a political party (or MP), or a campaign group, and then write a reflective assignment about your experience.
