Media Production BA (Hons) (top-up from FdA)

The course emphasises the production process. Media production is influenced by many cultural, economic and political factors; you will study these factors, together with the history of the media, so you can make really effective, powerful media products that connect with their target audience. Media production is a broad area of study, and the design of the Media Production course recognises that you may wish to either be a generalist or develop an area of specialism.
