Course content

Develop and hone discipline-specific practical production skills, while gaining a theoretical understanding of the Broadcast Media Industry. Our MA in Broadcast Media is for those students who wish to study both television and radio production. In an age of ‘visualising radio’ and convergent media, this course highlights the importance of working ‘cross-platform’ and aims to enable students to develop a range of skills to meet the industry’s needs.

Broadcast Media is taught at the Warrington Campus, which lies between the creative and cultural hubs of Manchester and Liverpool and in close proximity to MediaCityUK.

Our Media students have received a variety of accolades – most recently, The Cat Radio was awarded an I Love Student Radio Award for Best Training Initiative in 2016.

You will be encouraged and supported to make industry connections and undertake work experience. There will also be opportunities to work on ‘live’ briefs and showcase work at the annual Department of Media event.
