Introduction

BA Journalism with Human Rights

In a world of conflict and uncertainty, you can be the voice for those who need to be heard. Challenge the way human rights are understood across the globe. Our BA Journalism with Human Rights enables you to learn about the fundamental principles and practices which underpin the protection and promotion of human rights around the world. Alongside this you develop your journalistic skills, helping you to analyse information and understand it within the context of human rights law. You gain a strong understanding of the world we live in and how to engage with the audience, allowing you to develop your own unique journalistic style.

Explore a wide spectrum of human rights topics ranging from war to immigration. This is combined with the practical journalism component of this course; you use multi-media channels such as radio, television and online media, and deepen your knowledge of journalism on an international scale.

This course gives you the flexibility to choose the areas of the subject that interest you. Topics which you can study include:

  • Protection of human rights
  • Is everyone entitled to human rights?
  • Production skills
  • International journalism

At Essex we specialise in business law, public law, criminal justice, health law, law and technology, socio-legal studies and human rights law.

During your final year, you have the opportunity to bring all aspects of the course together in a final multimedia project on a subject linked to the human rights element of your studies.

You will join our Department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies and our Human Rights Centre where you will join our diverse community of students from all corners of the globe.
