ABOUT

Introduction

Work alongside independent and BBC audio producers, and award-winning academics, in this exciting and unique Master’s degree, accredited by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) to gain valuable experience, insights and contacts for your career in audio journalism.

Structure

Content

You will study:

  • Introduction to Media Law – an introduction to the concepts of ethics, law, broadcast regulation and press freedom. This module provides an opportunity for students to explore the impact of the reporting of crime and the justice system. Where possible, during the first semester students will attend and report on court hearings and visit Bristol Law Society.
  • Advanced Media Law – examines some of the current debates about accountability, transparency and regulation, and some of the practical challenges which journalists face in their everyday work. Where possible, during the second semester, there will be an opportunity to visit the Palace of Westminster and to take part in a Question Time with local MPs.
  • Journalism Collaborative Project – an opportunity for students to plan and undertake work that is related to their artistic and/or professional endeavours and career goals. The aim is to enable students to view themselves as professional practitioners and understand what is necessary in order to work as professionals in their chosen field. The module also aims to develop students’ entrepreneurial capability in practice through a collaborative project.
  • Multimedia Journalism 1 – students will operate as multimedia journalists in the field, studio and newsroom, putting into practice, and reflecting on, their own journalistic judgement, news sense, skills and knowledge. News days allow you to practice news reporting in a fully equipped multimedia newsroom, working as part of a team, prioritising the news agenda, researching, monitoring, news gathering and producing news for radio and online platforms.
  • Podcasting and Programming – building on the audio production carried out in other modules, students will engage in more advanced production and presentation techniques and professional practices. The emphasis will be on podcast and magazine programme production. Students will research and create podcast episode/s along pre-set theme/s suitable for different audiences and create a series of live/as live magazine programmes.
  • Professional Practice in Journalism – a bespoke and largely self-directed, extended production module, where students will undertake their own final project reflecting the skills and understanding of audio content and production. Students are supported by tutorials and sessions with an industry mentor to shape and layer their final narrative. It is expected that the final project will be of professional standard and a portfolio piece for prospective employers.
  • Radio Pre-Production – an introduction to the specialist field of Audio and Factual programming, which will provide an overview of production processes and develop key skills for employment. Students will undertake craft skills training across specialist roles, to prepare for production and further their professional development. This module will enable students to explore and critically evaluate content and equip them with creative idea generation strategies. Students will be encouraged to work up and pitch ideas for factual programming.

The University continually enhances our offer by responding to feedback from our students and other stakeholders, ensuring the curriculum is kept up to date and our graduates are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need for the real world. This may result in changes to the course. If changes to your course are approved, we will inform you. 

Study time

Formal learning takes place over two to three contact days a week and you will be expected to do the same amount of hours in self-directed study. Outside of class time, you will need to prepare course readings, and complete writing and research exercises, essays, production exercises and projects.
