BA Media Production Programme Threads
The programme can be seen as a series of threads that build your skills, understanding and personal development over the three years. The Programme threads are creativity, narrative, moving image production (factual and fiction), new media production, media industry and new media theory. It is important to also be aware that these bodies of knowledge cut across too, so theory informs practice, video production skills are utilised in multimedia and digital media tools develop important techniques and underpinning concepts for post-production. At level 5 (second year) you have the opportunity to take a module in TV Studio or Interactive Multimedia depending on your area of interest and at level 6 through the modules Dissertation and Production Project you can tailor your project work to suit your interests, skills and career ambitions. By studying an area that interests you and producing a media product that showcases your skills, this might be a documentary, a drama, a website, a multi platform drama or campaign or an interactive documentary, you will develop a portfolio and dissertation that reflects you.
