Liverpool John Moores University
Documentary MA *subject to validation
Our philosophy enables us to accept a wide range of applicants.
Applications to the MA Documentary will normally be considered in the light of the applicant's ability to meet the following criteria:
1. Generally applicants should have a minimum second class honours degree.
2. Non-media graduates with no formal media experience must demonstrate a genuine interest and commitment to practical filmmaking.
3. All candidates must be able to demonstrate the ability to benefit from and contribute to the programme. Although most applicants will be graduates, the fact that candidates may not have a degree is not necessarily a bar to entry. Applications from non-standard applicants are welcomed. The Programme Leader will make a decision on whether to admit the candidate on the basis of experience.
Please see guidance below on core modules for further information on what you will study.
•Practical craft skills in camerawork, sound recording and editing
•Core journalism skills including storytelling, interview technique, media law and ethics
•Core documentary production skills
•Tools for interactive documentary-making
Teaching and assessment methods vary according to the module.
Teaching includes a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, screenings and craft skills workshops. As a postgraduate student, you will have the flexibility and freedom to produce your own documentary project for a media platform of your choice.
Assessment methods are mixed, with practical modules usually based around portfolios of work including tasks aimed at the assessment of specific skills. Any written assessments you undertake may include essays, reviews and reports.
