This course interrogates cinema and television as art forms and as industries, locating them within specific historical and social contexts. It explores screen media texts, producers and audiences, and also gives students a solid grounding in film and television history, aesthetics and reception.In the first year, students engage in multidisciplinary activity in addition to core studies in film and television history, production cultures, the analysis of film texts and key critical perspectives, and the contexts of film and television consumption.
The second year deepens and enhances students' understanding of key critical and theoretical approaches in the study of the production, circulation and cultural reception of film and television. Modules therefore explore the ways film and television converge in the contemporary media landscape, the phenomena of transnational media flows, and the social significance of the culture industries and issues of representation. Students also have the opportunity to investigate practical media applications.
In the final year students, specialise in specific aspects of film and television studies by choosing from a range of advanced modules. These offer the possibility of investigating new and emerging areas of film and television studies concerning the production of texts, and audiences. Students also produce independent research dissertations under staff supervision.
