BA (Hons) Media Production

BA (Hons) Media Production

This course gives you the practical skills and knowledge you need to tell compelling stories through media. Content is the most important part of any media, so we will help you to generate and develop your ideas. You will then gain the technical skills to turn your idea into a story you can share with the world. The content you create could include:

  • Short films
  • TV programmes
  • Vlogs and podcasts
  • Radio debates and shows
  • Online and social media outputs
  • Magazines and print media.

You will master the equipment you need to create content across these platforms. You will use our TV and radio studios, cameras, sound equipment and editing suites. Experiment with smartphones, exploring their growing use as a tool for media production. In your final year you will specialise in the platform that interests you the most.

Alongside this practical element of the course, you will also learn about key theories and debates in media production. This knowledge will help you blend theory with practice to create better content. We will also teach you the business skills you need to succeed in the industry, such as budgeting, crowdfunding, branding and marketing.

We offer the chance for you to gain industry experience and build a network of professional contacts, working with guest editors, industry mentors and on live briefs and projects.
