Course summary

The MA in Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick has led graduates into diverse and creative roles within the industry. Warwick's Department of Film and Television Studies has a worldwide reputation for the quality of its teaching and research within the fields of film and television aesthetics, history and theory.

Course Overview

The Department of Film and Television Studies at Warwick is regarded as one of the finest in the world and offers an unparalleled training in audio-visual literacy, an increasingly valuable attribute in today’s world. Drawing on the internationally recognised expertise of our academics, primarily in the areas of Film and Television aesthetics, history and theory, this course enables you to familiarise yourself with key disciplinary issues and topics, and to prepare for application for PhD, if desired.

Later in the course, you have the opportunity to focus on an area of personal academic interest in your final dissertation.

Teaching

During the Autumn term you will take a core module, Screen Cultures and Methods, in which a number of staff will introduce key methodological approaches, and illuminate how an element of their own research can then inform the theory under discussion. You then have the choice of three further optional modules taken over the first two terms (one in the Autumn term and two in the Spring term).

The core elements of the Film and Television Studies curricula are supported by a programme of research seminars (departmental staff, PhD students and visiting speakers) and the wide range of screenings for other courses and more generally on campus.

The programme includes dedicated sessions in Graduate Skills that will equip you with the necessary academic skills to excel in Master’s assignments and PhD applications.

Assessment

A combination of assessed essays and a 15,000 word dissertation.

Careers

Graduates have pursued roles such as: arts officers, producers and directors; authors, writers and translators and research and development managers. They have gone on to work for employers including: StudioCanal, Fox Searchlight, All 4 and numerous academic appointments at UK and International universities.
