Course Summary

This PG Diploma offers an integrated programme of study in the theoretical, applied and creative aspects of contemporary broadcasting. Students will be introduced to theoretical approaches to broadcasting, as well as to basic techniques useful for broadcast practice. The programme is designed to appeal to graduate students in the Humanities and Social Sciences, particularly those with backgrounds in English, politics, history, journalism, cultural studies and creative writing. Previous academic study of or practical experience in the media is not essential, though it would be beneficial. The degree draws upon our relationship with BBC NI, together with other media organisations and professionals, giving students access to a range of events and opportunities to engage with the lively media landscape in Northern Ireland and beyond. Students are encouraged to develop their own interests throughout the degree, guided by the staff, whose backgrounds cover academia, industry and broadcast journalism.
