Course summary

The MPhil in Film and Screen Studies at Cambridge provides advanced training in study of the theory and history of film and other screen media in a vibrant interdisciplinary context. The moving image is explored in relation to the development of modern and contemporary culture, and to the history and theory of other media (literature, music, the visual arts, architecture, the digital). Students are immersed in a research environment that emphasises work on geopolitics, early cinema, art cinema and the avant-garde, theory, aesthetics, and gender and sexuality. The MPhil is offered by the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics (MMLL) as a nine-month full-time period of research and introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge.

The course aims:

  • to give students with relevant experience at a first-degree level the opportunity to develop a historically and theoretically informed approach to the study of screen media in their cultural contexts, both in taught classes, and through closely supervised individual research;
  • to give students the opportunity to develop a distinctive interdisciplinary approach to the study of film and screen, by exposure to the different kinds of enquiry undertaken in a variety of disciplines;
  • to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests; and
  • to offer a course which is also designed as the first year of research towards a PhD in film and screen studies.
