  • Objectives
    The production of digital media has fast become one of the defining creative and intellectual challenges of the 21st century. The convergence of creative and media technologies has delivered a greater range of sophisticated accessible and flexible services to users. This course provides you with the opportunity to develop your skills in Media Production technologies and challenge the applications to develop media that enhances the experience of your audience. The MSc in Media Production will focus on skills, processes and technologies in media production. This course offers students the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the technologies and principles that underlie the complete media production chain. Students will also gain the practical experience necessary to apply this knowledge effectively in real-world environments. Through exposure to advanced concepts in several areas relevant to media production students will improve their understanding of the capabilities and potential applications of relevant state of the art technologies. Students will also gain hands-on experience through practical sessions using different tools with a view to gaining or enhancing their ability to apply advanced concepts. This will allow student to appreciate that technology is not only seen as a tool but also a driver of creativity. The Media Production course is for you if you seek to further enhance or develop your career prospects by studying production processes with distinctive focus on creative technologies.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants will be expected to possess the equivalent of a British Honours Degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant subject. Students without academic qualifications but with extensive industry experience will be considered on an individual basis.

  • Course description

    Your course will consist of eight, predominantly technical, taught modules running over two semesters. During the third semester students demonstrate their learning by undertaking a substantial self-directed project leading to a dissertation.

    The modules cover four highly specialised areas (strands):

    Strand 1:

    The Research Methods and Critical Practice: This strand provides a mandatory spine of intellectual and academic rigour to the advanced production modules that can be taken as options on MSc Media Production.

    Strand 2:

    Video Production and Video Post-production: This strand examines a range of issues associated with modern video and film production including both processes and technologies ranging from studio techniques through to delivery of the final product.

    Strand 3:

    Audio Production and Audio Systems: The Audio Production module will provide the core, and the Audio Systems module will go into more advanced topics, with increasing emphasis on programming and music production.

    Strand 4:

    Interactive Fused Media and Applications: This strand will bring together visualisation technologies, interactive algorithm design, 2D/3D animation production, 3D design for real time broadcasting, augmented reality, and Human Computer Interaction (HCI).

    Activities in the first semester establish a common level of understanding then quickly build on that to develop a broad understanding of existing practice in the business, media content creation, and underlying technology.

    Activities in the second semester concentrate on deepening technical understanding of media production processes, and emerging technologies in three media types. Students are also prepared for their dissertation project in the second semester.

    Prior to commencement of the course you will be invited to an induction event where you will meet with teaching staff and fellow students, and familiarise yourself with the teaching and research facilities at De Montfort University.


    This is a modular course with each module consisting of contact teaching supplemented by a significant amount of guided self directed study. Each module is assessed using written and practical coursework, with some modules also being followed with a written examination.
