    Multimedia journalism is the prime source of up-to-date information about current events in the modern world. This module builds on students? prior analysis of print journalism and enables them to re-examine journalistic techniques within the multi-skilled culture of multimedia journalism. The rapid development of new technologies for the creation and distribution of sound, graphics and images has dramatically changed the scale, scope and structure of the news, television and radio industries. While satellite, cable, digital and the web carry an expanding range of broadcast outlets, many have a common core of programming, presenting news, current affairs, documentaries and feature formats. Journalism and News Media students will therefore study how these journalistic cultures of convergence can be theorised.
