Course Description

Film Studies - Theory History Practice (M.Phil.)

The course is a unique opportunity to embark upon a detailed investigation into the intellectual currents and aesthetic concerns surrounding the study and practice of film and digital media. From the outset, questions of history, theory and context are brought to bear on issues of close analysis and interpretation. Modules in Screenwriting, Creative Documentary Practice and Editing allow students to balance film theory and history with practice. At every step of the way your progress will be informed by an emphasis on independent study and critical thinking. In addition, the course aims to develop the key transferable skills required for postgraduate study. These include dissertation preparation, time management, and oral and written presentation.
