BA (Hons) Digital Television is designed to prepare you for a career in the media and television industries.

The distinctiveness of the course comes from our 40-year position as television training providers, and sharing our strong industry links with students.

Origination and the development of ideas is at the heart of this undergraduate degree, as well as the production of multi-platform programmes and other digital content appropriate to the modern TV industry.

The industry landscape in which digital television graduates will work in is challenging and incredibly diverse.

Course Content

Year 1

You will build basic knowledge in traditional methods of broadcasting. Alongside this, you will learn about the television industry and develop an awareness of multi-platform delivery and how to develop viable TV format ideas. You will cover studio and location production techniques in a range of genres including drama and factual programming.

Year 2

You will apply the production skills and techniques gained in the first year and experiment creatively on increasingly challenging projects. You will develop audience-led approaches to documentary, entertainment, live and interactive programmes. At the same time, you will continue to develop your own ideas and entrepreneurial skills.

The elective units include options to work on the Royal Shakespeare Company Live Broadcasts or taking on a management or production role in our new student-led TV channel ‘RaveTV, as well as a specialist post-production unit or a choice of other electives within the Media School.

Year 3

In the final level, academic and industry research forms the core of your studies with the dissertation unit. The professional initiatives unit involves individual research into new trends and emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality and 360degree video.

In creative futures you will work in a group to realise a project using one of the technologies researched in the first term.

Finally, the portfolio unit allows you to build a portfolio of self-initiated work and experiment with ideas and new media solutions that prepare you for professional practice.
