Film and television are central to global culture. They entertain, inform, promote ideologies and help us communicate to and connect with other cultures. If you want to look at how they do this - and why - Film and Television Studies is for you. You'll explore:
- their history and development
- how audiences interact and respond
- the practices and reach of screen industries
- talks by leading practitioners
- practical skills and CV writing workshops
- opportunities to intern at global media organisations (such as Disney and the Art Directors Guild in Los Angeles, and Red Bee Creative in London)
In year one, you will engage in multidisciplinary activity in addition to core studies in film and television history, production cultures, the analysis of film texts and key critical perspectives, and the contexts of film and television consumption. Year two develops your understanding of key critical and theoretical approaches in the study of the production, circulation and cultural reception of film and television. Modules explore the: ways film and television converge in the contemporary media landscape phenomena of transnational media flows social significance of the culture industries and issues of representation. You also have the opportunity to investigate practical media applications. Year three you will specialise in specific aspects of film and television studies by choosing from a range of advanced modules in: film and television genres global cinema and blockbusters audience study and more!
