Top-Up Degree In Multimedia Journalism

This one year course will be delivered on a part time/evening basis at our Coolock campus, with a minimum of 12 contact hours per week.  The radio broadcasting elements of the course will take place in the nearby NEAR fm radio facilities. The course requires full commitment from participants, as self-directed learning is central to successful completion of the Top-up degree.

The course, which will be taught by industry professionals, will develop learners’ ability to communicate effectively via a range of broadcast and digital platforms. You will be encouraged to engage in independent, critical thinking and to use your imagination, creativity and organisational skills. Participants should also demonstrate the ability to work to deadlines in the creation of journalistic items for broadcast/publication.

This is what former student Cathal Minogue had to say about course.

‘’I could not recommend the ‘Top Up Degree In Multimedia Journalism’ enough. I had just finished a PLC in Radio Broadcasting in Cork and wanted to develop my skills in all aspects of Journalism. I decided to make the big move to Dublin and I have not looked back since. From modules such as ‘Convergent News Production’ and ‘Investigative Journalism’. The course covered all aspects of Journalism in the Digital Age. Working closely with Melissa and all the other lecturers, gave me the confidence to graduate and go out and find employment in the industry. I had applied for this course with the hope of working in the radio industry, but since graduating I have worked in TV production as well as radio. Without their knowledge and guidance I would not have landed my dream job in RTÉ.’’
