Course summary

Today's employers are in urgent need of graduates with skills in current practices in media, and can produce media content, with a particular focus on digital innovation and emerging technologies. Studying this subject will give you a broad overview of the industry, as you develop your skills in producing media across a range of formats and platforms from audio to video, and online to broadcasting alongside developing your writing and research capabilities. You'll learn to think critically and creatively about media, and graduate as a multi-skilled, flexible producer and communicator, in a strong position for building a media career. Why UWE Bristol? On BA(Hons) Media Production, you will work with experienced creative producers, journalists and researchers, as you explore how digital media is embedded in our lives; develop your digital media production skills; and work in the heart of Bristol's vibrant media production and journalism sectors. You'll be supported to produce work across different platforms; use industry standard software and technology, in everything from social video production and live streaming, to virtual reality and interactive documentary making; and prepare a strong portfolio oriented towards your chosen career. Working with leading practitioners in the Digital Cultures Research Centre at the Pervasive Media Studio, there'll be exciting opportunities for volunteering, and the chance to gain valuable insight into the professional landscape you're moving into. You'll take part in live briefs, masterclasses and research, and have access to placements at organisations like Bristol Post, Bristol 24/7, UJIMA Radio and TechSPARK, and possible paid internships with local media partnerships. And because you'll be based at Bower Ashton Studios, you'll get to connect with peers from related disciplines, as part of our exciting City Campus. Where can it take me? Your expertise in media production, alongside your practical, research and creative thinking skills, will give you the edge in roles as varied as web content production, podcasting and digital media management. You could become a digital media producer or broadcast journalist, or work in social media. There are opportunities to progress to courses like our MA Journalism, MA Journalism (Audio Docs and Podcasts), and associated MAs.
