WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

You will be involved in practical hands-on projects throughout the course using our extensive media resources.
Projects are based on a structured approach to research, writing, presentation and production.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Students are taken seriously as media producers. The course offers a creative space in which experimental and innovative ways of working can be accommodated.
It is based in critical practice and invites the students to respond to the problems of media production now and how it has been shaped by key historical practitioners.
By making students as much aware of the historical contingencies as they are of the latest practical, technological and theoretical developments within the profession, the MA in Media Production seeks to equip them with the means to construct new forms of material imagination.
This imagination is, by definition, a form of shared social and political engagement with the world.
