Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

This programme offers you a broad'based understanding of how film, television and other screen media have developed and interacted across their varying histories. It also gives you the opportunity to specialise in chosen areas of those media histories, in order to personalise your studies towards specific intellectual interests and future career hopes. The programme is unique in the way that it combines rigorous academic study with creative and practical opportunities, the latter offered both within certain option modules and via the 2'month work placement. This intermixing of the academic and the practical also enables you to take your interests further, either into further postgraduate study, towards a career in teaching or into possible work opportunities in many areas of the media industries.
