Drawing on the internationally recognised expertise of our academics, primarily in the areas of Film and Television aesthetics, history and theory, this course enables you to familiarise yourself with key disciplinary issues and topics before focusing on an area of personal academic interest in the final dissertation.

  • Screen Cultures and Methods
  • Dissertation

Optional Modules:
Please note that the list of optional modules available will be subject to change each academic year. In the past, a selection of the following optional modules have been offered: Cities and Landscapes in Film, History and Memory in Italian Cinema, Irony in Film, Sound Cultures, Television History and Aesthetics and Film Criticism, Film Style.

* The modules mentioned above may be subject to change. Please read our terms and conditions for more detailed information.

Teaching:
During the Autumn term you will take a core module, Screen Cultures and Methods, in which a number of staff will introduce key methodological approaches, and illuminate how an element of their own research can then inform the theory under discussion. You then have the choice of three further optional modules taken over the first two terms (one in the Autumn term and two in the Spring term).

In the past, a selection of the following optional modules have been offered: Cities and Landscapes in Film, History and Memory in Italian Cinema, Irony in Film, Sound Cultures, Television History and Aesthetics and Film Criticism, Film Style. The course is designed and timetabled to move from intensive teaching in the Autumn and Spring terms to intensive independent research and writing in the Summer Term.

The core elements of the Film and Television Studies curricula are supported by a programme of research seminars (departmental staff, PhD students and visiting speakers) and the wide range of screenings for other courses and more generally on campus. The programme includes dedicated sessions in Graduate Skills that will equip you with the necessary academic skills to excel in Master’s assignments and PhD applications.

Assessment:
Students are assessed via a combination of assessed essays and a 15,000 word dissertation.
