If you’re looking to pursue a career in journalism, but would like to specialise in the discipline of music from the very start, then BA (Hons) Music Journalism at BIMM Birmingham will give you the competitive edge you need to become a successful music journalist.
This highly vocational course will help you develop dedicated skills in journalism and public relations, all within the specific context of the music industry.
