Birkbeck, University of London
Film, Television and Screen Media
This programme offers you a broad-based understanding of how film, television and other screen media have developed and interacted across their varying histories. It also gives you the opportunity to specialise in chosen areas of those media histories, in order to personalise your studies towards specific intellectual interests and future career hopes. The programme is unique in the way that it combines rigorous academic study with creative and practical opportunities, the latter offered both within certain option modules and via the 2-month work placement. This intermixing of the academic and the practical also enables you to take your interests further, either into further postgraduate study, towards a career in teaching or into possible work opportunities in many areas of the media industries.
Good Honours degree in a relevant subject. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
Core module: Media technologies and culture. Option modules (these change every year, but may include): Avant-Garde film, video and beyond; British cinema and television 1960-85; contemporary American cinema; European cinema at the crossroads; exhibiting the moving image: Research into practice; exhibiting the moving image: Theory and context; exploring the language of image and sound; film festivals; global television.
