Graduate Testimonials

brian buglerThe skills I learned during the Journalism with New Media MA have played a vital role in the work I do - from photoshopping skills, to audio and visual editing - the course has definitely taught me some of the most vital abilities I need working in the online environment. The biggest contribution from the MA is the website development and management module as I now am one of the people tasked with the day to day running of IrishExaminer.com, as well as social media and community management. My experience at CIT has been one of the best in my life and has no doubt been the sole reason I find myself in an amazing job with the Irish Examiner.

– Greg Murphy, Digital Operations Specialist, Irish Examiner


Through guest lectures and site visits I got the chance to meet leaders in the broadcasting and media industries. We had an opportunity to see how programmes are made, the many different roles involved and what happens behind the scenes. We learned so much about what's happening now in the industry and had the chance to engage with producers, presenters and editors. Those networking opportunities secured me my job.
