About Radio Production at Bournemouth University

The radio and audio industry is changing; podcasting has led to an appetite for audio content across the globe, like never before.  Telling stories in sound is an integral component of this course and you’ll engage with the crafting of radio programmes and podcasts in various production genres including drama, music radio, documentaries and features, while learning how this practice is contextualised both historically and theoretically.

You’ll be taught through a mixture of workshops, tutorials, lectures and seminars with full access to a range of studios, recording and editing equipment. You will also have the opportunity to broadcast on the MA managed radio station BIRSt.co.uk. Throughout the course you will engage with industry through guest speakers, station and events visits. You will develop in areas suited to your own strengths under the expert supervision of your tutors, and can even test your skills in industry, with the opportunity to take up a placement for three to four weeks if you wish. The course builds towards a final production project in which you will create a complete 30-minute programme to broadcast standard or a research-focused option is also available. 

Radio Production is part of a larger framework of Media Production courses collaborating to explore cross-media storytelling in production. Graduating students from the course have gone on to enjoy successful careers in the radio and audio industry and within academia - some are leaders in their field.

The course creatively combines academic rigour with current industry know-how.
