Description

MA Film considers film in its specificity and as a complex totality, various critical and theoretical positions that have sought to explain film and how film has been situated socially, culturally and politically. Implicit to the programme is an embrace of the diversity of film as an aesthetic, material and (predominantly) commercial object, of the diverse perspectives available to the study of film and of how both have developed, whether in terms of causality, alterity, mutual generation, opposition and/or contestation. Throughout the programme correlates filmic, theoretical and critical particularity with broader cultural, historical and institutional patterns and changes, with individual modules providing a variety of contrastingly privileged concerns and emphases.

The programme is open both to graduates who have previously studied film and to those from other, cognate disciplines. Entry requirements are normally a First or Second Class Honours Degree or professional experience in the subject area. Most important is an interest in and enthusiasm for film, and a willingness to engage academically. Students can manage a transition to PhD study via the programme, and we welcome research proposals.
