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. Why Queen's?Based in the School of English, the MA in Broadcast Literacy offers a combined academic and practical approach to the study of broadcasting, encouraging students to consider both aspects individually and together. Students are encouraged to develop their own interests throughout the degree, guided by the staff, whose backgrounds cover academia, industry and broadcast journalism. The degree draws upon our relationship with BBC NI, together with other media organisations and professionals, in order to offer students a better understanding of contemporary broadcasting through an ongoing programme of guest speakers and events.
