Course in Depth

What will I study?

The programme is designed around three core strands: production skills, practical skills, and academic study. Each year includes all the core themes but a different emphasis is placed on them as you progress through the course.

Year 1 covers a variety of modules surrounding production and production coordination as well as broadcast law. You can also choose to study the history of film and television or focus on key concepts in the study of television.

In Year 2 you will study the practical skills and techniques of production management and choose from a range of modules that examine different concepts around television such as medium specificity, audiences and narrative structures. You will also apply your production management to key practical areas including the increasingly important area of new media and second screens.

In Year 3 you will move onto advanced production management and examine emerging technologies in film and TV production and the issues and debates around them. You can also choose to undertake a dissertation and develop a programme idea that you could, if you wished, take into the industry.

How will I study?

Learning will be theoretical and practical. You will be supported by a range of resources including library materials, IT and internet access, computer hardware and software to industry-standard and by a range of media and digital multimedia. You may also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is by written assignments, research projects, individual and group projects, production folders and presentations.

There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods on this programme.

Who will be teaching me?

Staff are actively involved in both production and television research and have recently set up an academic research forum for Culture and Media. You will be taught by an experienced team of staff with research interests that cover a wide variety of topics including audiences, the relationship between film, television and the cultural industries, business skills and new media. Lecturers retain excellent links to the industry, with several still active as freelancers working in television.
