We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Radio Production equip postgraduates with the techniques to design and produce content for radio broadcasting purposes, including news stories, live music and other day-to-day events.
Taught MA courses are typical for this subject, though research-based MRes and MPhil courses may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Journalism or Media Studies.
Radio Production is no longer a case of simply producing content for digital audio broadcasting (DAB) purposes. With constant technological innovations and lifestyle changes, other radio formats such as internet radio and podcasting are increasing in popularity.
A Masters in this field will explore both these factors, providing training in practical instrumental techniques for radio production, as well as a scrutiny of radio’s cultural significance, impact and adaptability.
Pre- and post-production techniques such as script-writing and narrative construction, audio recording, sound design and music will be scrutinised across genres such as news and drama. Other formats, such as features and advertising, are also considered.
Careers in radio may include radio show hosting, news reporting, broadcasting assistance and producing. Other roles may include commercial production, news editing and broadcast journalism.
