Onderzoek

Onderzoek Journalistiek

De theoriedocenten voeren gevarieerd onderzoek uit op het terrein van Journalism Studies, ook binnen grotere samenwerkingsprojecten met bijvoorbeeld de universiteiten in Sheffield en Cardiff. Tijdens de opleiding maak je als student kennis met dat onderzoeksterrein en leer je ook zelf onderzoek te doen. Dat gebeurt tijdens de theorie- en onderzoekscolleges en bij je masterscriptie.

Soms leidt dat tot publicaties in de vorm van artikelen of boeken. Een voorbeeld is de bundel  De hoofdredacteur. Over ondernemend leiderschap in de journalistiek  (2011), dat voortkwam uit een onderzoekscollege met dat onderwerp.

De afdeling stimuleert de deelname van studenten aan congressen en symposia over journalistiek en Journalism Studies. Ook kun je gevraagd worden om als studentassistent mee te helpen aan een onderzoek.

Een paar langer lopende onderzoeksprojecten:

Op de  medewerkerspagina's  vind je meer over de onderzoeksprojecten van de docenten.

								Testimonial van

    ‎Video Journalist/Gallery Director

    Lees verder

    The internship I completed as part of my MA led directly to a job in journalism. After an intense year of studying and three months of work experience, my internship supervisor offered me a job as a Video Journalist. Since then, I have been promoted to Gallery Director, with creative control over my channel's live content.

    Studying in Groningen prepared me for daily newsgathering – it taught me how to make news – and also to look critically at the media content others create. That’s important regardless of whether you want to work in Journalism Studies or journalism itself; you can’t get better at what you do without reflecting on the work of others.

    Groningen’s the sort of place where other people will want to visit you. You won’t be able to keep your parents, friends or significant others away. I’ve got very fond memories of my time there, which was academically tough enough to keep me on my toes but relaxed enough to have a lot of fun.

    I’m looking forward to getting more presenting experience, something that studying in Groningen gave me a real taste for. After a year looking at such varied topics, you learn what you want to do most.
