Course summary

Radio and audio have the potential to be transformative, to further the human experience. It’s a medium that creates a sense of intimacy while continually generating questions. This is a programme that empowers you to create something permanent, something with a life beyond your own – something only sound can achieve.

Overview

You work in practice and theory groups, and take modules that cover:

  • radio features and drama
  • radio journalism and documentary
  • key media law and ethical issues in relation to UK and US media law
  • the cultural history of radio (primarily in Britain and the USA)
  • adapting prose, film and theatre for radio dramatisation

Throughout the year, the programme includes workshops and seminars by visiting professionals and artists in the radio journalism and radio drama fields. We are happy to support work experience placements in professional newsrooms and radio drama productions. The programme offers students the opportunity to learn Teeline shorthand, television recording techniques and online applications for radio.

Careers

Our graduates go on to work as broadcast journalists, creative programme makers, and foreign correspondents – and MA students are consistently winning significant awards for their work. For example in 2012, MA Radio students had considerable success in the Charles Parker student radio feature awards and the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) Awards for Best Radio News Feature and Best Online News Website.
