Liverpool Hope University

Film, Media and Society

The course is underpinned by critical and creative practice attuned to key global issues. It is critical because of its intellectual rigour, and it is creative because students have the opportunity to produce an original portfolio of work. The programme is equally suited for students who prefer to specialise exclusively in either theoretical study or practical work, or who wish to combine the two areas. Thus students may have the benefit of co-teaching from academics and practitioners, which will inform their theoretical understanding and research with insights amplified by experience of the applied creative process, and, symbiotically, illuminate their practice with rigorous scholarly contextualisation.

Entry requirements

A 1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree (or equivalent) will be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made.
