Future Journalism

Our alumni

Our alumni work across the media from the Financial Times, Guardian, Independent, Telegraph and Daily Mirror, to the BBC, ITN, Company, Readers Digest and Property Week.

The award-winning postgraduate journalism courses at Goldsmiths offer: small, intimate classes; a creative environment; dedicated and innovative professional staff and freelance lecturers; and brand new state of the art facilities.

Innovation is our watchword. We were the first to teach multi-platform journalism, the first to establish our own local news website, the first to introduce entrepreneurial journalism.

We insist that all our students should be both specialists in their chosen media field and capable of working across media platforms. Our courses are broad-based and flexible and prepare students for a multi-media industry, but we care that they are also learning to be the best specialists they can be in their field.

Goldsmiths journalism students run their own local news website catering to the communities living and working along the eastlondonlines. The multimedia site is updated daily and run on commercial lines entirely by students, with staff support.
