Film, Television and Digital Production

This Masters by Research has been devised for students who wish to develop advanced research skills in the areas of Film and Television Studies or Digital Production but who prefer, for practical or other reasons, not to attend a traditional taught Masters programme. In addition to one-to-one supervisions, you will be expected to attend an interdisciplinary core course on Critical Theory and Methodologies, which will provide you with an overview of key thinkers and critical approaches that will underpin your individual research project. This is an attractive advanced qualification which is particularly suitable if you are seeking a career in academic research and as a first step towards a PhD.

Entry requirements

Assessment methods
