We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Television Studies equip postgraduates with the skills to analyse, create and adapt content for the purpose of television viewing. Consideration is also given to the economic significance and governance of TV as a media platform.
Taught MA courses are typical for this subject. Entry requirements normally include a relevant undergraduate degree such as Media Studies.
Masters courses in this subject are usually theoretical in nature and less inclined to provide significant vocational experience.
Academic training typically analyses the role of TV as an economically and culturally significant communication platform. For example, you may analyse the ethical importance of the 9pm watershed, or the position of television as a contribution to modern mass communication.
Different kinds of television content (such as drama, documentary, journalism, children’s shows and so on) are explored, particularly in relation to adaptation and production. You will also analyse the governance and economic structures of the television industry in relation to contemporary issues.
Traditional career routes include screenwriting and adaptation, moving image curation, programming, and even news reporting. Legislative roles within television broadcasting agencies are also feasible.
