The modern media landscape is changing faster than any other industry, as it adapts to new methods of communication, new markets and new technology.
This programme, created and taught by media professionals, will enable you to respond to changes in the modern broadcast landscape.
You will learn about ‘360-degree broadcasting’, using the large number of platforms through which we now broadcast, watch and interact with media.
You will use the internet creatively to produce material and communicate ideas, as well as learning the traditional skills of directing, producing, sound, lighting, camera, editing and production management.
In addition, you will undertake a work placement that will give you first-hand experience of working in the industry.
This is a three-year, full time programme.
Assessment methods include script analyses, screenplays, reflective blogs, presentations, essays, case studies and examinations.
Group assessments constitute 50% of your overall degree and include short films, pitches and presentations, and written pitch documents.
You will learn through lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, and will have the opportunity to specialise in preferred media areas through case studies.
You will work on practical projects, both individually and in groups, replicating industry practice.
Students with disabilities
Due to the practical nature of some modules, it is possible that a student with a physical difficulty may find these particularly challenging. If so, the student is advised to contact the Disability Officer to discuss any specific needs prior to application.
This degree is designed for students looking for a career in broadcast media, in roles such as film and TV producer, director, camera operator, editor and production manager.
Whether you’re looking to make your mark in a small, independent company or a huge organisation like the BBC, this degree provides the training to do so.
