Focus on practical skills in media production. Improve your knowledge and build your CV. Get involved with high-quality media content, with technical skills that are in demand across the TV and Film industries.

MA Media Production will give you the skills, knowledge, experience, and confidence to be employable in the film, TV, and media industry, either in one or multiple professional roles.

The course is made up of four core practical modules and it has been awarded the ScreenSkills Select accreditation. The course aims to stretch your creativity and maximise your sense of personal fulfilment.

Throughout the course you will work on a range of projects and develop your practical production skills in areas including screenwriting, camera, sound, editing, lighting, colour grading, producing and directing. Your learning experience will be greatly enhanced by our lecturing team who are experts in their areas of specialism and by our first-class equipment including specialised cameras, sound recording equipment, movement rigs, and professional editing software packages such as Avid Media Composer and Avid Protools.

You will also have the option to take industry-recognised certifications in Avid software and albert – the industry organisation for environmental sustainability. You will work on group production projects supported by workshops, studio sessions and tutorials, as well as masterclasses led by industry professionals. The aim of the course is that you further develop your understanding of film and television production but at the heart of it is employability, we want you to work as closely as possible to the production process and techniques you would find in the industry. This combination of creative practice, research, and reflection will enable you to approach things with an open and critical mind, as well as the ability to communicate your ideas in a variety of forms.
