Course summary

Overview

This course allows you to think about the critical and creative relationships between film, photography and the media while developing your skills to produce projects of your own.

You'll complete a major independent project, supported by modules that put your practice into the context of contemporary debates. You’ll explore the different critical approaches to the making and consumption of photography and film, to inform the short film and photography projects you’ll work on.

The flexibility of this course allows you to choose from optional modules that suit your personal and career aspirations. You could study cultural policy, international film industries, film and TV writing, feminism in the media and more.

The content of the course modules is informed by the research interests and practice of academic staff who teach them.

Learning and teaching

We use learning methods that reflect the diversity of the course, including workshops, lectures, seminars, group learning, tutorials and film screenings. Independent study is a vital element of the course as this allows you to develop your skills and explore your creativity in practical work.

You'll be taught by active researchers in the field of film, photography and media. The research interests and practice of your tutors inform the content of the course.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

We use different methods of assessment, some of which will depend on the modules you choose. These are likely to include portfolios of practical work, group and individual projects and reports, essays, exams, literature reviews, case studies, presentations, scripts and commentaries.

Career opportunities
