Course Summary

This course provides students with the opportunity to engagement with film, both visually and intellectually at an advanced level. Considering film as a product of the societies from which it emerges, this critically and intellectually robust course draws on expertise within the School of Music & Media and the School of Languages, Literatures & Linguistics. Through examining film scholarship from a variety of different perspectives (aesthetic, political, historical) students will gain a deeper understanding of the subject and apply this to the analysis of film image - its specific visual properties, meaning and effects. Modern society cannot be fully understood without an appreciation of the role of film. Film provides a crucial barometer for measuring a society’s concerns, anxieties and preoccupations. More than simply ‘entertainment’, film helps us to understand its politics, history, culture, and the roles of class, gender, race, ethnicity and national identity.

The skills acquired during this course will prepare students for a range of employment options. Possible future career options may include film journalism and criticism, film and arts management, the film, media and creative industries. This MA will provide you with subject-specific knowledge and academic skills that will set you on course for further study at PhD level and beyond. The programme will also equip you with skills in critical thinking, analysis and communication which are valued by employers both within and outside the field of Film Studies.
