Journalism is all about keeping the world informed through information sharing. The digital age has transformed the way news is reported and consumed, with more media platforms available than ever before. Publishing was traditionally concerned with the distribution of printed media such as books, newspapers and magazines. However with the rise of digital media it now includes electronic publishing such as eBooks, blogs and websites.
With over 30 years of experience in researching and teaching Journalism and Publishing, we have established a reputation as one of the UK’s top institutions in the field. We're ranked 3rd in Scotland and Top 10 in the UK for Journalism, Publishing and Public Relations (The Guardian University Guide 2022).
The University of Stirling’s Journalism and Publishing courses cover both theoretical and practical aspects, and offer an in-depth, critical understanding of the practices. We encourage our students to undertake work experience, which many have done in national and regional media organisations including the BBC, Channel 4, Harper Collins, the Herald, Publishing Scotland, the Daily Record and the Sunday Mail.
