Programme structure

This interdisciplinary masters programme is designed to help you take the specialist academic knowledge from your first degree and apply it in practical ways to kick-start your career in broadcasting or scholarly research. Combining academic and professional training, the programme provides hands-on skills with a core understanding about how the industry works, promoting both critical and creative thought.

You will study three core modules (full descriptions available below):

Development and Production Processes for Film and Television
Documentary Filmmaking
Research Skills in Film and Television
Guided Editing/Guided Reading
The MA also includes a unique work placement of up to 12 weeks in the media industry at a partner company, such as Maverick Television, and you will complete the programme with either a 20-25 minute documentary film or a 15,000-word dissertation.

This programme also offers the opportunity to gain a Skillset accredited qualification in Health and Safety, in addition to your MA, which is a great enhancement to your CV

Career opportunities

Your degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by the employability skills training offered through the College of Arts and Law Graduate School.

If you have a specialist interest you would like to pursue on your placement, for example working with a UK-based company which broadcasts in your native language or which broadcasts to your home country, we will work with you to try and make that happen.
