Overview

The Aberystwyth Joint Honours Film and Television Studies schemes provide a rigorous and challenging programme of study, combining practical and theoretical approaches to the examination of film and television histories, productions, institutions and audiences.

The School of Art can offer you excellent facilities for the study of painting, the graphic arts, and photography, with studio facilities for painting, printmaking in intaglio, lithography, screen and relief printing, typography, black and white and colour photography. We also have a Creative Media Lab for the development of digital art, animation and video. The hundred-year-old listed building that houses the School of Art contains an art gallery that displays artefacts from the School’s extensive collection, with pieces dating from the 15th century to the present. At the end of your course you will be able to exhibit your own art in this exhibition space. The School runs an exciting programme of guest lectures and workshops from all aspects of the arts, and fieldtrips and excursions offer you the opportunity to enjoy art in a variety of historic and cultural settings.

Career opportunities

Students learn how to become effective communicators and how to work as part of a team when collaborating in production groups. You will have access to some of the most up-to-date facilities such as a multi-camera high definition digital television studio, high-definition digital video cameras and digital and video projection facilities to develop your practical production work skills. Special master classes are arranged with specialists including: pitching competitions, sound design workshops, production design for film, hair and make-up design and special effects and presenting yourself professionally. Students can also develop their experience and knowledge of working in a bilingual environment and students can perform through the medium of Welsh and English.

Many students find employment with film and television companies, working as researchers, editors, floor managers, camera operators, designers or directors. Equally many graduates find employment in a variety of different areas including teaching, administration, marketing public relations, and advertising. Your degree will provide you with excellent inter-personal skills and transferable skills including experience in group work, leadership, planning, budget management and personal motivation.

The Fine Art side of your degree prepares you for a career as a professional artist, photographer, printmaker, book illustrator, graphic designer or fashion and textile designer. Alternatively you might be interested in becoming a museum or art gallery curator, arts administrator, conservation officer or art therapist. The English Literature side of your degree makes you an ideal candidate for a career as a journalist, publisher, editor, author or literary agent. You could choose to go onto further study in one of your degree subjects and pursue a career in lecturing and research, or you could take a PGCE and teach either Art or English in a school. However, your options are not limited to careers that are directly related to your degree scheme. Other career prospects include public relations, marketing, law, librarianship, local government and management.
