Course summary

This degree programme studies cinema and television as major forces of enjoyment and knowledge within modern culture.

The city of Glasgow is a major centre for film and television production, and practitioners and policymakers from the creative industries visit the University regularly.

Film & Television Studies at Glasgow

Film & Television Studies (FTVS) is a dynamic subject area in the School of Culture & Creative Arts and has achieved national and international distinction in the field.

Cultural connections

Based in the Gilmorehill Centre, we are a frequent host for cultural events in Glasgow (Bandstand-related screenings, primary school screenings, etc) and serve as a regular meeting place for particular cine-related and broadcasting interest groups (the Radical Film Network etc). The annual Screen Conference takes place here each summer, attracting scholars from all corners of the world.

We have close involvement with film-related events in the city’s cultural calendar (Glasgow Film Festival, Africa in Motion Film Festival, Glasgow Short Film Festival etc). These are routinely supplemented by ‘pop-up’ events (the Rough Cuts Festival, student animation festival etc), occurring both as virtual and ‘real life’ experiences.

Links with industry

We enjoy historic links with the media production sector in the city of Glasgow (BBC Scotland, Scottish Television, Glasgow Media Centre, Film City, independent film, television and digital media companies etc), and with related sites of curation and exhibition (National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, Glasgow Film Theatre); of particular significance is the recent relocation of the Moving Image Archive to the refurbished Kelvin Hall, which incorporates a state-of-the art viewing theatre, online access to archival collections and workstation facilities for private study.

Screen production options

We are seeking to innovate and achieve distinction in the realm of practical screen production, a significant aspect of future development in the wider discipline of FTVS. We have two particular Honours options (Screen production for Junior Honours/Screen production for Senior Honours), available to students on the MA programme.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This programme is a valuable preparation for careers in various aspects of the media, arts and cultural industries. The immediate job destinations of some of our recent graduates have included production trainee for the Scottish Media Group and graphics operator for the sports technology specialists Deltatre.

Older graduates are now firmly established in their chosen creative fields, working for leading media companies such as Google and the BBC or as arts administrators, journalists and media academics.
