Overview

Through a combination of weekly lectures, seminars, screenings and workshops taught by internationally renowned academics and award-winning filmmakers, you will interrogate the ways in which films and television programmes are made and watched around the world.

During the first year, you will study modules that address the building blocks of screen language, genre analysis, screenwriting and production management, working on individual projects as well as collaborating in groups to make short films and television content.

In the second year, you will interrogate the relationship between representation and identity through screen criticism and in practice, across fiction and documentary, exploring the role of audiences in film and television consumption and employing creative approaches to short film design.

During the final year, you will explore career pathways with modules designed to focus on enhancing employability and transferable skills as well as the evolving globalised nature of production, distribution and exhibition practices in the transmedia age. These modules will be accompanied by one-to-one supervision in a final year project, which can either be a dissertation, film or screenplay.

Throughout your studies you will have the opportunity to use our cutting-edge production equipment, studio facilities and edit suites based in the University’s media academy. The media academy includes three green screen TV studios, a large visual recording studio with capacity for 200 seated audience members and a range of radio and music production facilities. Our large edit suites feature Mac Pro computers and the full Adobe creative package for editing, colour grading and special effects.

Thanks to the course teams close links with local, regional and national media industries, you will have the opportunity to benefit from a range of real-world learning opportunities such as workshops and masterclasses led by visiting media professionals including recognised film directors, exhibitors, writers, distributors, exhibitors and journalists.
