Mission & Strategy

Founded in 1992, the Department of Media Production sits within the Faculty of Media and Communication at Bournemouth University. The faculty is the largest centre of professionally-based media Higher Education in the UK. It offers a wide and growing range of academic and professional programmes, recognised and valued by the creative industries. The Department of Media Production is collaborative, creative and industry- focused. We encourage students to take ownership of their learning as they develop the intellectual, aesthetic and professional capabilities that aspiring media practitioner creatives need.
Faculty staff fuse professional backgrounds with practice, research and consultancy and the diversity of talent in our staffing enables vibrant dialogues with the student body encouraging them to take creative risks and innovate beyond current conventions. Courses are practice led, and solidly underpinned by theory and critical reflection with encouragement for industry relevant placement opportunities for students.
