Course content

MA Film, Media and Society at Liverpool Hope is underpinned by critical and creative practice attuned to key global issues. It is critical because of its intellectual rigour, and it is creative because you have the opportunity to produce an original portfolio of work. It is unusual for an MA to offer modules in both theory and practice, but MA Film, Media and Society is equally suited for students who prefer to specialise exclusively in either theoretical study or practical work, or who wish to combine the two areas. Thus students may have the benefit of co-teaching from academics and practitioners, which will inform their theoretical understanding and research with insights amplified by experience of the applied creative process, and, symbiotically, illuminate their practice with rigorous scholarly contextualisation.

Whatever your specialism, you will be taught by staff who are international experts in their field with either extensive current peer-reviewed publications, or multiple award-winning productions. The course is also highly career-focussed, and from the outset you will have opportunities to enhance your CV with workplace opportunities with independent entrepreneurs as well as multinational companies.
