Course Summary

Course description

This course, run in collaboration with international film specialists in our School of Modern Languages, will provide you with a deeper understanding of the relationship between films and the cultures and societies in which they are created and consumed.

You will have the opportunity to increase your knowledge of different film styles and film makers during the course, which will focus primarily on the cinemas of Hollywood, Britain and Europe.

The course will address the key aspects of postgraduate film studies, including the historical research of film industries, formal and thematic film analysis, and the relationship between film and society. This will equip you with the skills to increase your critical awareness of key debates and issues within the field.

This degree places particular emphasis on developing your independent learning and advanced research methods and skills, with your dissertation, which will be on a subject of your choice, contributing strongly to the final assessment. This focus will equip you for a career in arts and policy management, film journalism, the film industry or for further study to PhD level.

Teaching and learning

You will be team taught in thematic blocks of five weeks for each course module. Teaching will be seminar-based, with individual and small group tutorials in preparation for assignments. You will undertake independent study and research throughout the programme.

You will assessed through a variety of methods including essays, sequence analyses, book reviews, presentations and through your final dissertation.

Careers and employability

The MA in Film and Film Cultures will equip you for a wide range of careers in the industry, including film journalism, cinema and exhibition management, and film education and teaching, as well as jobs in the arts and creative industries generally. It is an ideal programme for those wishing to teach film either in schools or in adult education, and for those interested in proceeding to postgraduate research.

Modules

Each module will focus on a specific national cinema or film making region, such as Chinese cinema, Italian cinema, Mexican cinema or Latin American cinema.
