Film and Digital Broadcast Production
Course Outline

Our BA (Hons) in Film and Digital Broadcast Production degree brings together a wide range of skills and technical understanding from areas that are increasingly converging. You will build up production skills covering the creation of ideas from written concepts, scripts and audience research through to filming and editing for film, television, audio and online. The aim is that graduates will be best placed to secure employment either as freelance or for an organisation.

Delivered at our newly-developed Digital Media Centre at the City Hub campus, you will have access to our new broadcasting studio and podcasting/audio studio as well as the industry-standard Adobe Creative Suite. You will also have numerous opportunities to engage with other students aiming to get into the creative industries and will work in response to industry briefs.

About the course

Over 3 years, you will explore creative writing for media, television journalism, film production, audio studio production and online social media. You will have an opportunity to complete a production of your choice at the end of each year. You will be taught how to manage your own business in an industry which is becoming increasingly reliant on freelancing. You will also study digital marketing and how this rapidly-developing field can help build your own business as well as understand how you could work in an organisation producing relevant content.
