Course summary

Distinct from conventional film or media studies programmes, this degree views ‘the screen’ as the major form of culture, communication and entertainment.Resting on the belief that no single screen medium, such as film, can be studied independently anymore, it explores the complex interconnections among different screen industries, narratives and audiences through a wide range of activities such as academic classes, practical workshops, community projects and work placements.Core modules explore the histories, theories and industries of screen media from early filmmaking to smartphones and tablets. A wide range of optional modules allow you to tailor the degree to match your interests. Indicative options focus on documentary filmmaking, TV studio production, journalism, photography and scriptwriting.Local film venues like The Duke of York’s Picturehouse and events like the Brighton Film Festival CINECITY provide opportunities for students to gain invaluable experience. Regular guest lectures from industry practitioners allow you to learn from those working in areas such as television production, film distribution and animation.
