Newsroom

The University of Limerick has a dedicated newsroom where students work one-on-one with lecturers, guest editors and our adjunct professors including Geraldine Kennedy and Justine McCarthy producing newspapers and magazines for print and online. The newsroom is an exact replica of an industry news operation, including specialised editing computer work stations, reporting desks and a news conference area. Students learn how to sub edit and design news pages using digital editing software such as Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. Students are also trained in online journalism techniques using Adobe Flash for multimedia storytelling.  Students taking broadcast journalism classes are trained using Adobe Audition (for radio editing) and Final Cut Pro (for television editing) on high powered Apple Mac computers.
