This degree course is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of the fashion industry and help you develop the writing, broadcasting and multimedia communication skills you need to forge a successful career. You’ll cover all aspects of the industry, from historical and theoretical backgrounds of journalism to international fashion strategy. You’ll also gain a solid grounding in media law – vital for a career in journalism - as well as first-hand knowledge of how the fashion business works.
