Course summary

This unique MA programme is based within a university but run by leading film practitioners, ensuring that you not only receive the highest-quality practice-based learning. You have your own camera equipment throughout and we provide dedicated editing suites. The degree is currently taught in 4 studios (Experimental and Cinematic Non-Fiction, Documentary for Broadcast and Beyond, Cinematic Documentary Storytelling, and Immersive Factual Storytelling: VR/AR) Students will learn to tell stories in various film modes; to draw on anthropological and social science approaches to documentary; to think critically about the relationship between form and content in ethnographic/documentary practice; to master the technical skills needed to produce different kinds of films of different lengths for varied audiences; and to critically view and review film material.

Careers

The programme equips students for careers in: mass media including broadcast, cinematic and web-based moving image; film and TV industry as camera operators, producers, directors, editors, researchers; academia – ethnographic research, visual media and culture marketing and research; communication and other media; archives, as well as cultural heritage organisations. Employability

The increasing demand for social and scientifically trained moving image specialists in the years ahead will continue, if not accelerate. Graduates of our existing programmes now work in organisations such as Ipsos Mori film unit, independent production companies, BBC Education and in independent production companies.
