Media, journalism and communications

Graduate from this BSc degree course with a broad range of knowledge and skills to succeed in the production industry.

Ever wanted to work behind the scenes in the exciting world of TV or film production? Perhaps you dream of becoming a YouTube influencer or setting up your own production unit with its own streaming site? Whatever your desire, if you're going to be effective in the world of professional visual communications then you should give this degree programme your serious consideration.

It is widely acknowledged that the effective use of technology is a critical success factor for a wide range of organisations in the media sector. It is also well established that the effective use of technology requires an understanding of both the technical aspects and the management issues.

Traditionally, purely technical graduates lack a business and management perspective of this close-knit industry. Similarly, pure media graduates lack the necessary technical appreciation to deploy the complex range of equipment to the demanding technical standards required by industry. This programme bridges that gap and you will graduate not only with technical ability, but also the business management awareness to succeed in the audio/music production industry. Three strands (production; technology; management) run throughout the course, building knowledge at each level.

If this sounds like the sort of thing you had in mind as a career then the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University can offer the first vital step on the road to your future success. The Department consistently achieves high scores from the UK government, with various areas of its research listed as being of national or international importance.

You will have access to state-of-the-art sound technology as well as staff with extensive knowledge and experience. You will develop skills in media technology, electronics, computer applications and studio technology and be 'trained' in all aspects of live or recorded entertainment. Combined with the practical hands-on experience you will get if you choose to do a work placement, this will give you a significant advantage when it comes to securing your first job. During teaching you will use the industrially-relevent teaching facilities at the Byrom Street campus including a dedicated 'live' recording area, radio and television studios and modern editing facilities.

It is important to note that while this course includes some elements related to artistic matters, it is not an arts-based course. Furthermore, students are expected to engage with other media production theories and techniques where audio plays only a part, albeit a significant one.

Assessment methods

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, but will usually include a combination of exams and project work

?Students' knowledge and understanding will usually be assessed via a combination of examinations and coursework. However, certain subjects may be assessed by other means, such as through a portfolio of work, for example.

A final-year project gives you the chance to work independently and contributes considerably to your final mark. Your tutors will give prompt and constructive feedback via Canvas, face-to-face or in writing. This will help you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more effort.
