From the latest ‘kiss and tell’ story on a tabloid front page, to the war in Afghanistan – journalism informs our view of the world, and shapes our decisions. Journalists tell stories, as do creative writers. At Strathclyde, we offer the opportunity to combine both journalism and creative writing in one degree programme taught by internationally-recognised writers, academics and experienced journalists.
Our graduates have won awards for student journalism and gone on to succeed at national newspapers, in the regional press and as published authors. The ability to communicate well, combined with an understanding of the media is sought by a variety of employers, including public relations firms, publishing houses, advertisers and marketing departments.
