Course content

In the digital, cable and satellite age, film and television play an increasingly diverse role in the audiovisual and communications industry. This programme offers an in-depth study of Irish cinema and television from historical, cultural, social and economic perspectives.

If you have an interest in the audiovisual sector, either through your undergraduate studies, extra-curricular activities or simply through consuming film and television, this is a dynamic and unique Irish course. Our students often hold a primary degree in the humanities and social sciences but we are open to considering students from other backgrounds and those in employment, such as teachers, who want to utilise a career break or leave of absence.

Because of the complex issues raised in addressing questions of national identity, in what is perhaps the most resolutely international of all cultural industries, particular importance will be attached to the study of the concept of 'national cinema' in Ireland.

Information for international students
