The course aims to train the next generation of journalists to ‘be prepared to navigate the evolving landscape of digital journalism.’
Students will have the chance to attend ‘master classes’ conducted by NBC news staff and can go backstage on NBC news programmes to learn about production.
Each student produces pre-recorded news projects, using both single and multicamera, which they edit using Final-Cut Pro.
Comprehensive coverage doesn’t come cheap, though. At around £8,500 per semester, there may still be something to be said for learning on the job.
