The Department of Journalism at City, University of London, is a journalism school in London.[1][2] It is regarded as one of the best universities in the United Kingdom for the study of journalism.[3][4][5] as well as the nation's largest centre for journalism education.[1] It was described by Michael Hann of The Guardian, along with Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, as the "Oxbridge of journalism".[6]

The British newspaper The Independent praised its "legendary status within the media", primarily due to its practical approach to journalism and its "unparalleled access to media facilities".[7]

The department is situated in the university's Grade II listed College Building, which dates from 1894.
