Contemporary society is dominated by visual media – film,
photography, television, internet. This Film and Visual Cultures
MA allows you to investigate the technological, social and cultural
changes that have led to this development.

It also addresses the practical and political implications of this
change for contemporary visual media production and analyses the
specificity of visual media forms.

In order to critically and creatively operate in a visual media
dominated world it is vital to develop the conceptual tools that are
necessary for analysing visual representations – the codes,
meanings, visual languages and genres framing our visually dominated
media culture.

By choosing specialist modules and by undertaking a research project,
you will engage with cutting-edge ideas, rigorous methods and
theoretical frameworks.

Through this approach an expertise is developed in the texts and
artefacts of diverse film traditions, television, advertising,
photography and digital visual media and cultures.
