Course Introduction

This course offers a unique combination of critical and creative approaches to the past and the future of audiovisual media. MA Film and Screen Studies will equip you with skills and knowledge to address current transformations of moving image media in a globalised world, from the media in your pocket to architectural screens. It explores the old and the new, philosophy and history, theory and practice, so as to help you understand the challenges of the 21st century's culture of moving images, changing artistic and political contexts as well as ever developing technologies. What distinguishes the MA in Film and Screen Studies is its innovative approach to learning and research. It takes you well beyond the borders of traditional film studies. It encourages you to think critically and imaginatively, across media forms, disciplinary boundaries as well as conceptual and creative work. Students taking the Media Arts pathway will have the opportunity to submit some work in non-traditional forms. Teaching and supervision draw on the diverse research strengths of the globally renowned academics at one of the world's leading media communications, and cultural studies departments, which also has strong traditions in audiovisual practice. Graduates go on to work in areas such as programming and curating, film and video distribution, and film and television criticism, but many also create their own careers. Twenty per cent of our graduates pursue PhD degrees.
