Course summary

On this course, you'll master creative production skills, and you'll explore the economic, cultural and historical relationship between media and society. Combining film making, TV production and visual design with analysis of film media - it's a stimulating mix of areas. So as well as getting hands-on to learn about practical elements like typography, layout and composition - you’ll also examine news, documentaries and the representation of gender in media. You’ll also discover production studies – analysing the way that media industries are organised and structured, and what you need to do to get ahead. Here, you'll benefit from facilities such as Middleton Hall, where we've invested £9.5 million to create a world-class concert venue, cinema and theatre space, with full video production capabilities. That's as well as our media lab and studio facilities. Our links with organisations such as Screen Yorkshire's Connected Campus can help prepare you for life in the industry through masterclasses, workshops and visiting speakers.
