Course summary

We have been teaching and conducting research in film and media since 1978, and our combination of academic and practical work continues to make us one of Scotland’s top institutions in this field. We are top in Scotland for student satisfaction in the 2016 National Student Survey. Whether studying Film & Media alone or in combination with other subjects, you can expect excellent teaching from staff with a range of skills, from active academic researchers to former and current professionals from media industries. You will also benefit from the Macrobert Arts Centre, an on-campus multi- screen cinema and theatre, and our students often choose to contribute to the campus television station and filmmaking group AirTV, to student newspaper The Brig, and to Air3 Radio. Film and Media teaching combines analysis and practice. You will learn the critical and theoretical skills required to study a range of topics within film, broadcasting, digital media, advertising and political communications. You may select modules devoted to audio and video productions and developing related skills in production, post-production, content development, pitching and research. Film and Media has excellent relationships with media organisations and individual media practitioners, who advise and contribute to our degrees. Students studying with us have full access to a modern suite of media facilities for radio and television production and a state-of-the-art newsroom. You will also be given the opportunity to participate in exchange programmes through which you could study for a semester or a year in a location chosen from a list including the United States, Canada, Australia and countries in Europe. Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. During this course you will investigate how and why humans (and other animals) behave in the ways they do, and learn about the mental processes driving these behaviours. As you’ll discover, Psychology is a very broad subject, covering such diverse areas as brain function, perceiving the world and even the social interactions in a football crowd. Psychology at Stirling is internationally renowned for research and this feeds into teaching. In our taught modules, you learn of the importance of research in furthering the understanding of behaviour and, in practical work, develop research skills of your own. Semesters 1 – 2 comprise an introduction to psychology as a biological and behavioural science including: Developmental Psychology; Brain and Behaviour; Language and Thinking; Animal Behaviour; Clinical and Abnormal Psychology; Social Psychology and Cognitive Psychology. Other modules on this course may include: Research Methods, Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Individual Differences, Cognition, Animal Behaviour and Clinical and Health Psychology. In the final year of our Single Honours Programme, as well as an individual research project, you will choose from a wide variety of electives that are designed to allow you to explore topics that interest you and build your employability skills. Teaching is by workshops, small discussion groups and practical sessions such as laboratory work or field work.
