Introduction

BA (Hons) History and Journalism

The best journalism is based on a sound understanding of the history that has shaped the world we inhabit today.

There is a strong and growing tradition of deeper journalistic investigation into issues and events in the recent and more distant past (however that might be defined). This might be to unearth new knowledge, to investigate and reinterpret existing thinking, or to revise and update past ideas and understandings.

This innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary programme, jointly delivered by the Department of History and the Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies, emphasises that the causes and results of events in the past are fiercely contested by historians.

Much contemporary journalism is focused not only on reporting, contextualising and analysing events as they happen, but also as they have recently happened. Consequently, journalism is often likened to ‘the first rough draft of history’.
