Course summary

Our MA Film and Screen Media with Film Programming and Curating explores the history, development and interaction of film, television and other screen media. The programme encourages you to explore a wide variety of screen media in historical, sociological, aesthetic and anthropological terms and in a variety of cultural and national contexts. You can also explore film programming and curating and choose to specialise in areas including film in museums and galleries, audiovisual archival practices, and exhibitions.

You can thus personalise your MA studies and specialise in areas of film and screen media that match your intellectual interests and career goals, while a work placement option allows you to gain practical experience that may enhance your career prospects.

The programme is unique in its combination of world-class, rigorous postgraduate study with creative and practical opportunities. Some of the option modules, including the two-month work placement module, can help you stand out in a competitive job market and further your career in the media, creative and cultural industries. The programme will also prepare you for advanced research at MPhil/PhD level if you wish to continue studying.

This programme has three other pathways: MA Film and Screen Media, MA Film and Screen Media (with Study Abroad) and MA Film and Screen Media (with Television).

ASSESSMENT

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework. The methods of assessment on this course are specified below under 'Methods of assessment on this course'. You will need to allow time to complete coursework and prepare for exams.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go in to careers in film and television companies, museums and galleries, arts administration and education. Possible professions include arts administrator, museum or gallery curator, or teacher. This degree may also be useful in becoming a programme researcher or television/film/video producer.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
