Course summary

Overview

The creative industries are among the most important, and successful sectors in the UK economy. Television and radio, whether broadcast or streaming services, are not only economically important, but they are also key areas for providing communication, information and entertainment, for supporting culture and for exporting it. These media connect people locally, nationally and around the world.

This PG Diploma offers a programme of study combining the theoretical, applied and creative aspects of contemporary television and audio production. Students will be introduced to theoretical approaches to broadcasting and streaming, developing their understanding of the social and cultural roles of these media, as well as to a variety of production techniques vital to the production of factual television, audio, VR, AR and interactive media.

The programme is designed to appeal to graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly those with backgrounds in English, politics, history, journalism, cultural studies and creative writing. Previous academic study of or practical experience in the media is not essential, though it would be beneficial.

Career Prospects

Employment after the Course
