In the Master's Degree in Continuing Education in Radio, Podcast and Digital Audio, we train you as a multidisciplinary, versatile and multi-skilled professional to join the increasingly growing audio industry. The evolution of the digital sonosphere requires professional profiles that can work both in a radio station, as well as in production companies, distributors and branded content for podcasts. This postgraduate degree enables you, in addition to performing traditional functions in the world of radio as a communicator, producer or program announcer, to develop as a podcaster.
We train you as an audio content creator, producer, distributor and marketer of podcasts, audiobooks and social audio.
The Master's Degree in Radio, Podcast, and Digital Audio, with 60 credits, offers advanced practical training thanks to the experience of the most renowned professionals in the Spanish and international industry.
Our degree has been academically designed taking into account the evolution of the audio market in recent years. The evolution of the digital sonosphere has meant a change in the communication paradigm in which radio was the most predominant in the market. The consumption of audio has changed and, as a result, so have the logics, systems and channels of production, distribution and marketing. The new habits of sound consumption are exerting a powerful change in what can already be described as a new cultural industry. Currently, the most demanded profiles to cover this transformation go through the creation, production and distribution of content related to podcasting, audiobooks, social audio and radio as social media in accordance with the features of the contemporary digital ecosystem.
Radio, despite having the listening predominance, has been losing audience for years by not incorporating new listeners to its market. Radio is in the midst of a digital revolution and will have to adapt to the new demand for audio. The main international audio platforms in Spain are investing in exclusive content. This implies a commitment to production in each country, and therefore qualified professionals with the ability to respond to the demands of the market and companies.Read less

In this sense, we are looking for students who have skills that foresee a good disposition for teamwork, have great flexibility and open-mindedness to the incorporation of new knowledge and new ways of working, and that, regardless of what scientific or technical studies they come from, they show a great interest in the humanities in general, and a great sense of social responsibility in professional work.
The admission process to the Master's degree begins by sending the following documentation by post or courier to the Postgraduate Admissions Section:
Once the documentation has been received and it has been verified that the diploma submitted grants to the degree, as established in Arts. 15 and 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, candidates take the admission test with the coordinator of the degree. This test is carried out in person in Madrid when possible or, failing that, it can also be taken remotely (online) for those candidates residing outside of Spain.
The candidate holds a personal interview with the Program Coordinator. This interview is in itself an admission test in which the specific knowledge of the candidate is evaluated through a battery of questions about the area of knowledge, as well as their level of maturity and attitudes to it. After this interview, the coordinator prepares a report on the candidate's skills profile, his degree of maturity, his personal interest in Audiovisual Journalism and his suitability for the degree, which is attached to the file that the Admissions Commission will assess.
The University Admissions Commission, made up of heads of the Department itself, the General Secretary and the Department of University Development will be in charge of proposing to the Rector of the University the granting of student status to those candidates whose suitability has been proven.
The candidate receives written information about their admission, which is previously provided by phone, about the result of the admission process and formalizing their enrollment in the Program, the definitive documentation, duly legalized, that must be submitted, etc.
