Course summary

Overview

This course combines the theory and history of cinema with the study of the industry and craft of filmmaking, and gives you the opportunity to explore your interests in the history of film, global cinema, and contemporary film and its key role in modern society.

Through the core module (Film Arts and Industries), you’ll be acquainted with the theoretical, historical and cultural approaches to the medium of film and institution of cinema, and you’ll investigate the variety of skills and activities around film as an art, as well as cinema as an industry.

The independent project will allow you to specialise in your own interests in a way that will serve your intellectual and creative aspirations and career goals. Working with a specialist academic, you can choose to write a dissertation based on research into a film/cinema topic, or you can choose to combine a shorter dissertation with a creative or practice-based activity appropriate to your interests and skills.

Learning and teaching

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

You’ll have the opportunity to complete a varied range of assessment forms, including standard academic essays, literature reviews and independent projects. You may be assessed on the production of video essays or real world resources if appropriate to your skills and interests.

Certain optional modules also give you the opportunity to complete reflective logs and creative writing exercises as well as oral presentations.
