Programme structure

Year 1 is foundational and introduces the academic study of media, developing core skills and understanding in the use of media across a variety of contexts. There is a particular focus upon the impact of digital technologies as new and old media converge.

In Year 2, students take two mandatory modules; a specialist practical module in podcasting and a specialist theory module in popular music. They are able to tailor their learning by choosing from a range of optional modules. The Work Placement module gives students the chance to think carefully about their ‘graduate exit strategy’ and what they need to do to achieve the career they want.

In the final year, students gain experience in radio production and radio studio management, and undertake an Extended Independent Study. Again, students tailor their learning by choosing from a variety of optional modules – some are conventional academic modules giving students the chance to study specialist areas in depth and some modules offer further practical experience relating to various aspects of media and journalism.
