Radio & Audio BA (Hons)





About the course

This course will allow you to study broadcast media (radio) and the creation of audio content on other platforms, such as podcasts and websites. You'll gain a real understanding into how a much loved medium has evolved, and what goes into creating great content. The course provides a range of practical broadcasting journalistic skills coupled with a strong grounding in relevant media theory.

The course is designed to meet the needs of those wishing to work in broadcast media, or those who wish to pursue a wider career in audio content creation and understand how the media works and is used in a professional context.

You will study a combination of units that will cover a broad professional outlook. In the first year you will study Reporting and Writing, Radio 101 History and Practices, Radio Skills and Understanding the Media. In your final year there will be the option of two projects pieces, either Audio Documentary Production or Contemporary Practices and Debates in the Media.  

Alongside your studies you will have access to RadioLaB, the university’s very own community radio station broadcasting across the county on FM. Students can get involved in the station by presenting, producing or promoting the station.
