Course summary

Course Overview

Do you want to be prepared for professional life within the media industry? Our BA in Media Production covers a variety of disciplines that are necessary for the demands of this industry and equips you with skills for employment in media organisations.

Media organisations are increasingly reliant on higher education to produce graduates who are agile, flexible and resourceful. On this course you will gain the experience and expertise to produce high quality media content in a range of forms and across different platforms, responding to the on-going changes in technology, regulation and societal uses of media.

You will also develop a range of media production techniques that can be used for online and offline media. You will combine theory and practice in recording techniques, photography, journalism, sound design, podcasting, video and screenwriting.

On our course the teaching will feature a variety of approaches and technology, blended together to engage your learning in class and beyond, and to encourage your full participation. The teaching and learning strategies have been designed to ensure that there is progression from formal teaching through to independent learning as you progress through the levels of the programme. Guided independent study will include activities such as reading and research, planning for productions, and self-guided production activity on location.

A variety of assessment vehicles will be used as appropriate to the modules you take, including assignments carried out in your own time, in-class assignments, workshops and presentations. Assessments will be appropriate to the task, achievable, motivating and vocationally focussed, forming a constructive part of your learning process.

Assessment approaches include:

  • Group and individual portfolios of written work and media content that will include research, pre-production, production and post-production work submissions
  • Critical self-evaluation and role analysis in the form of individual reflective written evaluations
  • Peer evaluation in the form of discussion of work in groups
  • Opportunity for external placement and work-based learning reports that will enhance each student’s capacity to adopt professional working practices
  • Tasks aimed at the assessment of specific production skills which will target each individual’s career aspirations
  • Independent work at the culmination of the degree comprising a short media production.
