The course is built on a series of taught modules, each requiring written research essays or projects for assessment. You will also embark upon a 10,000-word research thesis, in an area of your specialist interest, to complete your studies.
This is an option-based course, and you can choose from the range of modules on offer from three pathways theory, culture and industry although you do not need to follow any particular pathway in your choice of modules. Some modules are biased more towards contemporary issues such as distribution, exhibition, festivals and the global film industry, and some are biased towards cultural context and historical background. Others pursue more specific concerns of film and television theory, criticism, analysis and film history.
You should possess, or be expecting, a good undergraduate degree or, exceptionally, previous relevant experience. You will need fluent written and spoken English to study at postgraduate level. If your first language is not English, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent
This is the longest-running postgraduate course in the country in the study of film and television, and it retains its strong reputation within the film sector. In addition to theoretical, cultural and critical dimensions, you will gain an overview of the international film industry ? both historic and contemporary. You will also investigate production, distribution, exhibition and marketing, from mainstream commercial productions to alternative, experimental and independent film, video and digital work.
Past and present students from all over the world are employed in the film and television sectors, as small-scale producers and film and video makers, or working for larger organisations and TV companies as script consultants, programmers, executives and film educators. Students have also taken the course to develop and expand their teaching careers, and several have progressed to doctoral studies in the UK and abroad.
