This MSc Factual Television gives you the tools you’ll need to create factual content for broadcast. Developed with industry and taught by experienced practitioners, this course is focussed on practice: growing ideas, developing proposals and making programmes.
You’ll learn how to develop factual content, how the modern television industry works and how issues of editorial and ethics affect programme-makers today.
Hands-on experience is at the heart of everything we do in production at Stirling. Our courses mirror professional practice in the industry: teaching includes masterclasses, workshops and pitching panels with experienced practitioners.
The course will cover core areas of factual TV:
A minimum of a second class Honours degree (2:1 preferred) or equivalent in a Media or Communications subject such as Film and Television, Broadcast Production, or Journalism. Applicants without these formal qualifications but with significant appropriate work experience are encouraged to apply.
You’ll be required to submit a written proposal of 600 words for an original factual television programme.
