Radio Production

The development of DAB, internet radio and podcasting is creating exciting opportunities for radio producers, and this course will enable you to take advantage of these new technologies - as well as more traditional media - to communicate with audiences in a creative and exciting way. You will engage with the crafting of radio programmes on a variety of media platforms in production genres including Drama and features alongside your theoretical study of Narrative Construction. Professional development is explored and you will have the opportunity to engage with industry, with guest speakers, station and events visits. The course builds towards a final production project in which you will create a complete 30-minute programme to broadcast standard. An alternative research-focused option is available if you feel that is more suited to your strengths. Production lecturers on the course have experience of working for leading national radio stations and our industry guests cover a range of production genres. You will develop in areas suited to your own strengths under their expert supervision, and can even test your skills in industry during the course, with the opportunity to take up a placement for three to four weeks if you wish.
