Description

Advertisement

The MLitt in Film & Television Studies, taught in Scotlands media capital, offers the opportunity for the critical study of film and television. This well-established programme aims to provide an advanced understanding of the approaches and methodologies in Film & Television Studies and to equip you with core research skills for advanced study in this field.

Key facts

* MLitt: 12 months full-time; 24 months part-time

Career prospects

The programme provides an excellent foundation for an academic career in this field and we provide support and guidance on PhD applications and funding opportunities if you are considering this path.

As an MLitt student, you will have plenty of opportunity to meet and work with our PhD students for example, through the annual postgraduate conference and find out about the range of research projects in which they are involved: from AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Projects with industry partners (BBC Scotland, the Glasgow Film Festival), to personally-conceived projects on filmmakers, genres, periods, or themes within film and television studies.

While the MLitt is a good training for PhD study, graduates go on to a range of careers in the media and creative industries (e.g. film education, festival management and programming, arts administration) as well as to research roles (e.g. in television, academia, or the public sector).

Contents

The MLitt has three components:
* A Core Course, taught from September-March, which introduces the breadth of film & television studies as a discipline whilst developing core research skills. It is taught by all staff working within the MLitt in Film & Television Studies, giving you access to our wide range of expertise and approaches.
* Three optional courses, selected from: * a range of bespoke courses drawing on the research specialisms of the subject team. Recent options have included Critical theories of digital media; Documentary in film & television; History of critical writing on film & television; Multistrand narratives in the fiction film; Film & movement; Ethnicity and identity.
* courses which are offered as part of the MSc in Media Management (Media economics, Media and cultural policy, Issues in audience management)
* and you may choose one course from our undergraduate programme which cover a range of national and transnational cinemas (Scotland in film & television; New German cinema; Asian cinemas; Australian film & television; American independent cinema), periods (Interwar cinemas; Hollywood in the 1990s), genres (Childrens television; Contemporary television drama), approaches (Studies in authorship; Feminist film theory) and themes (Television, memory & the archive; Screen audiences; Screen violence; Sound in film & television; Studies in authorship).


* A 15,000 word dissertation (May-September) on an aspect of film and/or television of your choosing, under the supervision of a dedicated member of staff.
