Digital Media Production

The MSc Digital Media Production will provide you with the skills and professional level expertise in the industry standard tools that are needed for the creation of contemporary media products. As a student with a first degree in a discipline other than a technically-based media subject, you will learn to operate digital equipment and manipulate data to produce finished products for the creative industries. This course covers video and audio production, computer graphics and animation, and the making of interactive products for distribution via new media platforms, as well as the longer established media of television, video and audio. You will work on the award-winning Brookes TV, making and producing broadcasts.

The course will enhance your career prospects and will offer you the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to work in the media industry.
