Masters degrees in TV production offer training in the design, creation and production of content for television viewing and broadcasting purposes.
Taught MA courses are typical for this field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Film or Media Studies.
You will gain experience in the technical production of a range of television material. From journalism and documentaries, to sports programmes, drama and children’s shows, you will gain a wealth of vocational and theoretical expertise.
Practical training involves instrumental techniques such as sound recording and design, camerawork, lighting and directing. Techniques in pre-production (such as scriptwriting), and post-production (such as editing, transcription and subtitling) are also a large component. Consideration is also given to ethics, policy and legislation - such as the 9pm watershed – as well as the role of television in wider society.
As well as production, careers in television could include public relations for companies such as ITV and Channel 4, legislative roles within licencing bodies, or consultancy for the independent production sector.
