Where to get a media degreeWatch
Where's the best place to get a media degree?. I'm interested in film, video, photography, and radio not so much digital media or web design. Looking at Leeds at the moment. Also, would like it to be fairly practical. Any help greatly appreciated!
As another user has pointed out, Royal Holloway has a course in Film, Television and Digital Production. I graduated from Royal Holloway with a degree in Media Arts so I would be thrilled to chat with you about the course or the uni if you have any questions.
The course offers a 50/50 split between practical and theory, and both sides really compliment each other. In your first year you'll try a little bit of everything and then in your second and third year you can focus your modules onto the things that most interest you, from practical modules such as Sound Design, Cinematography and Directing, to theory courses in Bollywood, Hitchcock and the Avant Garde. You can take a look at the course breakdown here - take a look at the Course structure tab to see the full range of core and optional modules.
Even outside of the course, there are a whole selection of Societies such as Photography Soc and Film Soc as well as the chance to host or produce your own radio or TV show with Insanity Radio or Rhubarb TV.
Let me know if you have any questions about the course!
