Course summary

The MA Film with Practice is a taught programme suitable for graduates in film, practitioners who want to advance their practice in an intellectually stimulating environment and non-film graduates with a passion for film practice demonstrated though amateur filmmaking. The programme is taught by award-winning filmmakers, internationally recognised film scholars and includes masterclasses from film industry professionals.

The programme aims to: develop the understanding and skills possessed by students entering the programme to a notably higher level of sophistication and achievement (appropriate to an M-level award) than would be expected at degree level, such that all leave the programme with a substantial analytic, critical and practice-based understanding of Film; develop the ability of students to think independently, argue with clarity and force, initiate and complete creative work and to discern areas of research and practice-led research within the field; provoke reflection on practical, critical and theoretical approaches to Film and its context; nurture intellectual and creative skills through written work (essays, dissertations, treatments, scripts), creative practice (DV films) as well as in the context of interpersonal interaction (seminars, research papers, supervision, filmmaking processes); develop existing and new areas of teaching informed by and in response to developments in film practice, research and scholarship; provide an excellent quality of higher education; attract outstanding students irrespective of race, background, gender, and physical disability, from both within the UK and from overseas; support national and regional economic success by producing graduates in possession of key knowledge and skills, with the capacity to learn; provide opportunities for the development of personal, communication and research skills and other key skills appropriate for both graduate employment in industry or further study; provide learning opportunities that are enjoyable experiences and involve realistic workloads, based within a combined research and practice-led framework; offer appropriate support for students from a diverse range of backgrounds; provide high quality teaching in a supportive environment with appropriately qualified and trained staff.
