Critical Screen Practice

The MA Critical Screen Practice introduces students to a broad range of critical and analytical approaches to various aspects of media while also providing the opportunity to develop their practical skills. Students develop an advanced knowledge of media, film and television and apply it to industry-related practice, theory and research. The programme will advance understanding of the social, cultural, economic and political context of media production, and foster rigorous skills in research methods, analysis and the theoretical conceptualisation of media and cultural theory. The philosophy which underpins the programme is a desire to provide students with a learning experience that encourages and stimulates their intellectual curiosity, supports their development, challenges students and equips them with the necessary skills and abilities to compete successfully for a wide variety of employment opportunities in the media industry. The MA will be attractive to graduates who have studied an area of creative study/practice such as media, music, film, television or drama. This programme is for those who wish to acquire specialist craft skills, combined with reflexive engagement with the policy and practice of the media and film industries.
