Course Summary

This is an advanced practice-based research programme for students wishing to extend their research into the areas of film, photography and electronic arts. The programme is particularly relevant for students who have an MA degree and are looking to position and develop their research and practice work. It will be tailor-made to your individual research area and practice, giving you the opportunity to develop research skills and pursue your own area of interest. You'll work closely with a personal supervisor to develop your work in the areas of filmmaking, photography and digital arts. The programme meets the needs of two groups: students who have completed an MA in Filmmaking, Photography, or Electronic Arts and cognate programmes (for example, our MA in Photography: The Image & Electronic Arts); film, photography and electronic arts professionals who wish to extend their research-based practice. The course is designed to support students who wish to strengthen their opportunities in professional media, including the media industries and creative practice, private sector firms, public sector institutions and civil society organisations with communications departments. We envisage that a small proportion of graduates will seek careers in teaching, including secondary and higher education, in which case their projects and supervision will be tailored to that end.

Modules

The project in the MRes Film, Photography and Electronic Arts comprises a portfolio of practical work (such as photographs, video, film, installation, websites or other digital/print material) alongside a textual component. The work submitted should be original, and be as integral to the research aims, processes and outcomes of the project as the textual component. The final project as a whole will therefore demonstrate the integration of its practical and research components, so that text and practice reflect critically on each other. The length of the textual element should normally be between 5,000 and 10,000 words.

Entry requirements

Students will normally hold the equivalent of a Merit or Distinction at MA level. Practical experience of media production, in taught courses or professionally, is essential. Candidates with a first degree and professional experience equivalent to a relevant MA will be considered. Candidates will be asked to submit a research proposal demonstrating a sense of the wider conceptual field in which their chosen practice falls.
