Film and Television Studies with a Placement Year

Course summary

Overview Gain a critical expertise in the interpretation of film and television as you learn about these global media industries and the part they play in shaping an understanding of the world around us. UEA is an early pioneer of the discipline of film and television studies, and our friendly and approachable academics are highly respected around the world for their research and teaching. We span British, U.S. and global cinemas, popular genres of film and television, including British television especially, and we have a particularly strong reputation for feminist interpretations of media too. Your BA Film and Television Studies with a Placement Year degree covers the history of film and television from its earliest days to the present. You will explore the social and political contexts that shaped media storytelling and learn about the development of the industry and cinemagoing, perhaps encountering global phenomena like Doctor Who or the Marvel adaptations along the way, or other topics to inspire your studies while you sharpen your critical powers. There are also opportunities along the way to do media practice, to gain insights into the creative process of making film and television by producing your own work. Make use of our outstanding facilities, valuable partnerships, and local opportunities. We’re home to the sector-leading East Anglian Film Archive – a unique resource that you might use in shaping your own Final Year dissertation, for example. We have close links with the British Film Institute in London and the Norwich Film Festival. Meanwhile, you’ll be studying in a region, here, that is a dynamic centre of the media industries, home to local production companies. You’ll develop many transferable skills on this degree course, including high-level research and communication skills, team working, leadership, and self-management. These desirable transferable skills will open up a wide variety of careers, whether you want to become a writer, producer, or director in the industry or any number of other occupations in marketing, advertising, the charity sector, and more besides. In the past, our graduates have gone on to success as film industry executives, producers, media managers, creative directors, or to work in film heritage, for example. In BA Film and Television Studies with a Placement Year, you’ll do a Placement in Year 3, gaining real-world experience and connecting your academic skills with employment while gaining new skills to complement your course.
