Course summary

The MA (Hons) in Film Studies offers a comprehensive study of global film cultures. Film Studies uses a variety of critical, theoretical and historical approaches to examine one of the most significant cultural and artistic forms of the 20th and 21st centuries. The course critically examines the history of moving images across time and cultures, looking at a diverse range of topics from sexuality on screen to activist documentary, from propaganda to digital media. Engaging the industrial, institutional and psychological contexts of global cinema, as well as analytical, media-historical and political approaches to film scholarship, you will emerge with a powerful set of scholarly tools. The MA (Hons) in Film Studies is a four-year course run by the Department of Film Studies. In the first two years, students are introduced to the key concepts, theories and methodologies of Film Studies as well as a variety of methodological and theoretical frameworks for the historical study of cinema and the visual media. This lays the foundation for more specialised and increasingly challenging modules offered at Honours level.

Sustainable Development is widely regarded as the most promising framework for addressing environmental and developmental challenges in the 21st century. These challenges include the provision of clean water and adequate sanitation, energy generation and supply, human health, food production and distribution, and the continuing threat to biodiversity. The MA (Hons) in Sustainable Development encourages students to rise to the challenges of the environment and society and focuses on the study of principles and practices of sustainability in an interdisciplinary environment. The MA (Hons) in Sustainable Development is a four-year course run by the School of Geography and Sustainable Development, with contributions from the Schools of Biology, Chemistry, Management and the Department of Social Anthropology.
