Sarah Haynes is Head of Media Production.
The department is home to BA (Hons) Media Production. A programme that prepares students for a career in the Media. Graduates of the programme are flexible, confident storytellers across a range of media platforms from television, to online, mobile to big screens. Students with an understanding of the contemporary media landscape, a firm academic foundation and a raft of digital media and production skills are more able to move into a range of occupations and industries when they graduate.
The course is accredited by Creative Skillset. The Creative Skillset Tick is the quality mark identifying the courses that best prepares an individual for a career in the Creative Industries. As Creative Skillset reports, “students completing ticked degree programmes are three times more likely to be employed within the Creative Industries than students completing non-ticked degrees.” (Creative Skillset)
Sarah’s career and education spans theatre, photography, film / video production, writing and new media. Her research explores the opportunities digital technology affords for collaboration in writing fiction and the potential for new reading experiences. Sarah is currently registered on a PhD exploring participatory online fiction.
