Course summary

Explore film and media through an exciting range of theoretical and practical projects at our Creative Campus, Kingsway.

Course overview

This course is for students who have a passion for watching and discussing film and for consuming and analysing the media, in all of its many forms.

Our students look at the way media is constructed for particular audiences, whether that’s a feature film, podcast or television programme.

Critical approaches to analysing media and film are also key, including how to contextualise the importance and impact of these creative industries historically, politically and culturally.

Projects throughout the three years also enable students to develop technical, creative and employability skills in production, from audio and video recording to scriptwriting and film reviewing.

Why study this course with us?

Our course gives students the opportunity to explore cinema, film, television and other media from a variety of perspectives, examining key moments, movements and events that have impacted and shaped the dynamic creative industries.

Students are able to study specific directors in film history, to examine Hollywood’s dominance and explore contemporary cinema. You will also explore the role of media in society, the continuing transformation and the rapid development of forms and technologies.

Alongside the theoretical study, you will engage with a variety of practical workshops and sessions to develop creative and technical film and media production skills.

In the final year, students are encouraged to focus on aspects of film and media which they are keen to research independently. This is a great opportunity for students to pursue their own interests and specialism and understand its relevance to a career in the creative industries.

Teaching methods

The course is taught at our Creative Campus, Kingsway, which houses a range of Mac labs, recording studios and workshop spaces, as well as lecture and seminar rooms.

You will be taught through a blended learning approach, mixing face-to-face, online and asynchronous sessions.


You will be assessed through coursework and practical assessments.

Job prospects

Graduates of this course could enter a range of careers in and beyond the creative industries. This could include working for independent companies or broadcasters and pursuing a diverse range of roles such as researchers, editors or film reviewers. Students could also pursue postgraduate studies.
