A Guide to TV and Media Production Degrees Abroad

As quickly as developments in technology continue to break down barriers in all areas of communication, television and media are becoming internationally oriented phenomena before our eyes. Earning your TV and media production degree abroad is the best first step you can take towards making a global career out of your passion for entertainment and broadcasting. Think you have what it takes?

Why Earn Your Degree Abroad

Pursuing your TV & media production degree abroad can undeniably be a daunting prospect. You will be leaving the comforts of home to explore the unfamiliar, immersing yourself in an entirely new academic and cultural context. Yet by doing so you will find that, in a profession which is largely centered around communication, the skills and knowledge you gain by earning a TV and media production degree abroad will bring you to entirely new heights; both personally and as a budding professional in the field.

Locations

Most international students choose to pursue their TV and media production degree abroad in countries where the media industry has a global reputation for success and high quality production. For example countries such as the United States, Australia, and England are all exceedingly popular destinations; both because of the prestige of their television and media industries, and the stellar reputations that their institutes of higher education enjoy on the global stage.

Other countries that are popular destinations where to earn your TV and media production degree abroad include Argentina, France, Germany, and China. By pursuing your degree abroad in a non-English speaking country you will be challenging yourself to become fluent in a second language, a skill-set that can help you greatly down the line during your career in television and media. The flipside is that you will have to know enough of the local language at the outset to understand what your professors are talking about!

TV and media production is a fairly specialized degree track, so do not expect every foreign university you research to offer a program in the field. Many programs are also located at smaller film or arts schools. Browse the programs listed on this page to get an idea of the many different types of programs through which it is possible to earn your degree abroad in TV and media production.

Academics & Degrees

TV and media production requires a wide range of skills encompassing every aspect of the production process. Earning your TV and media production degree abroad therefore will generally require you take take a diversity of courses that cover film, audio, design, editing, script development, and other aspects of communications and technical production. Students of TV and media production may also be required to pass their host university’s basic requirements and/or take a set of additional general education courses while earning their degree abroad.

TV and media production degrees abroad are conferred at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate programs generally last for three or four years and will require you to take many basic courses introducing you to the fundamental concepts of the industry. Graduate programs (usually issuing a Master’s degree) last for one or two years and will give you the opportunity to specialize in an area of interest while gaining further work experience through research or an internship.

While the technical knowledge behind TV and media production remains largely a constant from country to country, cultural norms can also play a large role in determining the role of media in society. This means that the location of your TV and media degree abroad program may significantly affect the content of your education; something to remain steadily aware of while looking for the perfect program!
