Overview Film and television are multi-billion pound, interrelated global industries that play a crucial role in shaping how we see the world around us. UEA pioneered the study of these media forms and remains a leading institution in their study. In this degree, you’ll explore the historical, aesthetic, and cultural dimensions of film and television as well as considering the social, political and industrial aspects that shape those media forms. You'll learn about key historical moments in film and television and about theories which have been developed to create and make sense of the film and television content we consume on a daily basis. Topics might include the global phenomenon of Doctor Who, trace Marvel Comics adaptations through TV and Film, study global cinema, or American cinema and screenwriting. Alongside your theoretical studies, you’ll have opportunities to discover how to make your own film and TV content and explore writing for different media. About This Course One of the longest-established and most prestigious degrees of its kind in the country, our BA in Film and Television Studies will provide you with an opportunity to explore these two hugely influential mass media art forms in depth.
