Course content

This programme offers you the opportunity to undertake in-depth study on a chosen aspect of film and cinema studies. Following first semester modules in Research Methods and in Media, Culture, and Creativity, you embark on a 40,000 word dissertation (or practice-based equivalent). Specialist film staff across the College of Arts and Humanities at Bangor will be on hand to supervise, as you develop, sustain, consolidate and resolve a self-directed programme of work in the field of film studies, either creative or theoretical, over an extended period of time. The MRes is supported by a dedicated College-wide seminar series, which offers you the opportunity to present your own work in progress, and to develop an understanding of critical paradigms and research in Bangor and beyond.

Successful applicants for this programme will have an excellent first degree in a relevant discipline or equivalent practical/industrial experience, and a demonstrated ability to work independently to bring a self-directed project to completion.
