This September, build your storytelling career with the University of Nottingham Malaysia and CNN!
The University of Nottingham Malaysia’s MA in Media, Communications and Culture provides you with the theoretical, analytical and practical training required to continue to a higher education degree or to develop professional skills relevant to working at management level in the fields of media, communications policy and industry.
In 2022, you will have the opportunity to benefit from working with one of the world’s most recognised news brands through our exciting new optional module – Digital Storytelling and Production. The CNN team will take you through a series of online workshops before you fly out for a week to join the Sprint programme in Abu Dhabi. The Sprint programme is curated in association with the newsgathering, digital and programming teams associated with CNN’s flagship current affairs program broadcast out of Abu Dhabi, Connect the World with Becky Anderson.
You will take part in a series of immersive simulations designed to give you real-life experience of how a multimedia newsroom operates. You will work through a real-life breaking news case study, produce and broadcast a short TV show, and launch a digital news product. During the Sprint, you will also pitch, shoot and edit content using their smartphones, and present your work to a panel of CNN judges.
Alongside your completed module assessment and credits, you will be awarded with a CNN Academy Certificate in Storytelling.
Triple triumph for Nottingham University Business School (NUBS)
Nottingham University Business School joins the top one per cent of business schools in the world that hold ‘triple crown’ accreditation. The renowned ‘triple crown’ accreditation for business schools worldwide is made up of the three most influential accrediting organisations: AACSB in the United States, AMBA in the UK, and EQUIS in Europe.
Furthermore, the school has earned these accreditations for all three of its locations in the UK, China and Malaysia, making it the only business school in the UK to hold triple accreditation for its operations on every campus. Employers recognise the accolade as a mark of high standards, quality and reputation.
New programme from the School of Psychology
The School of Psychology is also following suit by offering a new master’s degree, an MSc in Developmental Disorders, starting September 2022.
The programme aims to provide advanced theoretical knowledge of the psychological aspects of developmental disorders, develop the students’ expertise in cutting-edge research methods to investigate the psychological aspects of developmental disorders and expand the students’ practical knowledge on aspects of diagnosis, assessments, and interventions (therapeutic or educational).
The course will run for three academic semesters and will involve workshops, lectures, seminars, research supervision and teaching modules that cover Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Childhood Clinical and Behavioural Disorders, Developmental Disorders in Context, Psychological Assessment, Advanced Methods in Psychology and Professional Skills.
All teaching under this new module is led by research, meaning that the programme is delivered by highly productive academic staff who regularly publish scientific articles in the world’s top-ranking psychology journals, particularly those specialising as an outlet for new discoveries relating to various aspects of developmental disorders.
