Through the  BA (Hons) Media Production programme, students will acquire skills in photography, video, audio and web design. They can work on and develop a range of factual media and experimental and socially engaged projects.

These are supplemented by a training in the use of software used within the industry, and an ability to respond to new developments as the industry innovates.
