Film and Screen Media with Film Programming and Curating

This Master's degree in film and screen media explores the history, development and interaction of film, television and other screen media. The course encourages you to explore a wide variety of screen media in historical, sociological, aesthetic and anthropological terms and in a variety of cultural and national contexts. You can also explore film programming and curating and choose to specialise in areas including film in museums and galleries, audiovisual archival practices, and exhibitions. You can thus personalise your MA studies and specialise in areas of film and screen media that match your intellectual interests and career goals, while a work placement option allows you to gain practical experience that may enhance your career prospects. This course is unique in its combination of world-class, rigorous postgraduate study with creative and practical opportunities. Some of the option modules, including the two-month work placement module, could help you stand out in a competitive job market and further your career in the media, creative and cultural industries. The course will also prepare you for advanced research at MPhil/PhD level if you wish to continue studying. This course has two other pathways: MA Film and Screen Media and MA Film and Screen Media (with Study Abroad).
