Postgraduate degrees in Film and Television Studies

Delve a little deeper

We have a worldwide reputation for the quality of our teaching and research within the fields of film and television aesthetics, history and theory. If you join us, you'll benefit from our close, tight-knit community: we offer an outstanding staff-student ratio and welcome up to 25 new postgraduates every year.

Taught courses

Warwick Film and TV Studies offers two taught MA courses. Between ten and twenty postgraduates take our taught courses every year. These degrees offer you regular contact with tutors and peers, and culminate with an independent research dissertation on a subject of your choice.

While both courses are taught, the MA for Research is intended for students who have firm PHD plans and feel they need to develop their knowledge of fields not covered by our taught modules in order to prepare for their proposed PHD project. This course, generally, accepts one to three students each year.

You will be taught by the country’s leading scholars, using state-of-the-art equipment. Your film screenings will be supported by lectures, seminars, workshops and supervisions. All this will help you to develop and refine your audio-visual literacy and communication skills.

Research programmes

These courses suit students who thrive on independent study. You will explore a topic in-depth as part of an active research community, supervised closely by experts. We currently have 14 full-time members of staff with many research strengths who could be your supervisors. We usually welcome up to 5 PhD students every year.
