Media

This course is concerned with a range of opportunities and challenges affecting the media - industry practices, technology and convergence, new media and globalisation - as they relate to the media in a variety of contexts, such as business, culture, economic and identity. Our course offers you the chance to study some practical aspects of television and radio, alongside theoretical research and the opportunity to gain an awareness of contemporary issues and debates that affect all media industries and sectors.

Entry requirements

The entry requirement is a 1st degree; there is no requirement for prospective students to hold a first degree specifically in media, as the level of theoretical and practical teaching and learning accounts for students who hold degrees from different disciplines.

Course modules

Modules include: Multi-skilling for television; contemporary media issues; new media practices; research skills and methods; radio studio: strip formats and magazine programmes; media industry practices; media project.

Assessment methods

There is a diverse range of assessments, as one would expect given the 'blended' nature of this Master's programme. These range from research papers and research proposals to portfolios and production pieces. Students can elect to undertake a Master's Thesis or produce a substantive production artefact.
