These materials have been produced by journalism students at the University of Lincoln (UK).

The School of Journalism (now the School of English and Journalism) was formally opened by the celebrated investigative journalist John Pilger in November 2004, to develop the study of journalism in all its aspects. In addition to the now well-established BA (Hons) Journalism programme, there are also joint honours programmes in English & Journalism and Journalism & Public Relations, as well as a suite of MA journalism programmes and a doctoral programme.

The character of the Lincoln journalism programme is distinctive, with a particular focus on journalism and international human rights, the regulation and conduct of journalists, press history, and the relationship between journalism and literature. Students have won awards in national and regional competitions for their work produced on different platforms including, broadcast journalism, online and magazines.

The Master’s programme in journalism includes popular modules on arts reporting and cultural journalism, as well as modules on news reporting, sub-editing, press law and careers guidance combined with work placements. The School also offers specialist Master’s programmes in Arts Journalism, Digital Journalism, Science & Environmental Journalism, Sports Journalism and an MA in Journalism, War and International Human Rights.
