Broadcasting degrees abroad

Broadcasting is the recording and transmission of news and information through various platforms including radio, television, the internet and social media. Students studying broadcasting programs will have the opportunity to learn about recording, filming, writing, producing, presenting and editing content.

Broadcasting is one of the fastest-changing professions in today’s world. Advancements in technology mean that we can now report and access news from almost every corner of the globe. By studying broadcasting abroad, you’ll see its growing global nature first-hand and will be equipped with the tools to excel in an increasingly competitive media landscape.

It’s a great idea to study broadcasting abroad not only because of the wide range of programs on offer, but also because you’ll develop both personally and professionally. To succeed in broadcasting, you’ll need to be able to immerse yourself in new environments, communities and cultures. By experiencing and exploring new places while studying, you’ll gain these vital industry skills.

Broadcasting program structure

Broadcasting can be studied all over the world, but how it’s studied will depend on the type of program and the country you’re in.

If you’re an international student in the US, there are various ways to study broadcasting, including a one-year certificate program or a two-year associate degree. However, broadcasting is most traditionally studied as a major or minor component of a four-year BA or BSc degree. The US liberal arts model means that you would spend a certain amount of time and credits on broadcasting-specific modules.

Broadcasting can be studied as a stand-alone subject at both master’s and doctorate level in the US.

In the UK, you can study broadcasting as a single-honours or a joint-honours course. This means that you can study it by itself or alongside another subject. Master’s and doctorate programs are available in the UK.

Broadcasting programs will usually be made up of a combination of theoretical lectures and practical classes where you’ll have the chance to use industry-standard equipment. There will also be small-group workshops, personal tutorials and individual study time.

Broadcasting programs may differ in name. For example, similar programs may be called ‘multimedia’, ‘broadcast communications’, ‘media and communications’, ‘broadcast television and radio’, or similar titles. Although the structure and content of these programs will differ, they will typically include the following areas of study:

  • Film and television production practices
  • Editing for film, television and video
  • Mass communication law
  • Audio production and editing
  • Presenting and writing for broadcast
  • Broadcasting ethics
  • Researching and newsgathering for broadcast
