Overview

Programme Overview

The BA (Hons) Media Production programme* will enable the students to develop skills, knowledge and understanding in media production across all media platforms as well as digital media production skills. It will give students a broad understanding and engagement of the dynamics of the creative economy and the role of media in society and the economy at a global level, to prepare students to create pathways towards employment as creative professionals in a range of contexts from digital media production companies to online storytelling.

Students acquire skills in photography, video, audio and web design to equip them to work on and develop a range of factual media and experimental and socially engaged projects. They also develop skills in writing and research to develop innovative and appropriately framed creative media content and storytelling across multi-platforms. These are supplemented by a training in the use of software used within the industry, and an ability to respond to new developments as the industry innovates. Production skills and thinking are underpinned by an understanding of the impact of media in its cultural and historical context and the way viewers respond to media forms and practices. Students are provided with a rigorous academic training in research methods and skills in analysis, academic writing and presentation.
