In the first year – the foundation year – you will study 4 modules; a subject-related module, a numeracy skills module, a study skills-related module called 'Succeeding at University and Beyond' and a foundation project module. After completion of this foundation year, you will then move onto the Media Production honours degree course.
Discover your specialism, or become a master of all trades. On this practical based course, you’ll undertake a series of projects, making full use of the University’s TV studios, radio studios and editing suites. Work alongside BBC Newcastle Journalists, take a placement with Made in Tyne & Wear or volunteer on internationally award-winning Spark Sunderland; all based in our dedicated Media Centre.
Supported by our experienced experts, you’ll connect with industry; develop and pitch ideas to industry practitioners and take placements to build your network. Our students have taken advantage of our relationships with BBC, Capital FM, Sunderland AFC, Tyne Tees Television, Made in Tyne & Wear and various production companies.
In your final year, you’ll produce a major piece of work in your chosen medium. This involves pitching and developing proposals and delivering a finished piece to professional standards. You’ll also choose one of three routes which will lead your final degree title – so you can show off your specialism. Choose from:
- BA (Hons) Media Production
- BA (Hons) Media Production (TV)
- BA (Hons) Media Production (Radio)
