Our MA Film and Media allows you to tailor your studies to your own areas of interest in film, contemporary media and popular culture. Perhaps you’ll choose to focus on European cinema and its relationship to American commercial cinema. Or maybe you’ll explore the new wave of Asian cinema. You’ll develop your research skills throughout the programme and gain the confidence to critique and expand existing theories, analyses and methodologies. And you’ll produce a piece of independent academic research. This could take the form of a traditional dissertation or an industry research project. This programme engages with a multitude of creative industries and media facets – policy, industry, content and audiences. You’ll get a good understanding of how a media product is generated, circulated and consumed. What you'll study You’ll start this postgraduate film and media course with two compulsory modules which examine key film and media theories and methodologies across the 20th century. They include integrated research training to help you contextualise your own research. You’ll go on to choose a number of optional modules to tailor the course to your interests. You might focus on media and the creative industries, which includes television, film, music, print and online digital industries. Or you might look at the history, context and conventions of a specific genre in film or television. If you’re studying part-time, you’ll complete the taught modules over two years, delivering your dissertation at the end of Year 2.
