Course content

Prepare to combine the development of your existing creative skills in film and television production with a fascinating grounding in the historical and theoretical approaches to the two media.

Your core modules will focus on creativity and developing ideas, the study of media forms, short film, and video production – giving you a strong base of knowledge. You’ll then have free rein to pick complementary modules from a range of options covering areas such as gender in media, Hollywood cinema, and national and international film cultures.

One of the most important aspects of your MA is the dissertation-by-practice: an audio-visual project combining your intellectual and theoretical knowledge with your practical skills, supervised by a faculty member. This is your chance to focus in depth on a subject that inspires you and takes you closer to your career goals.

Your studies will come to life in a number of different ways. As well as lectures, seminars and film screenings, you’ll have access to UEA’s Television Studio and our state-of-the-art Media Suite, packed with cutting-edge media technologies including editing suites, cameras, sound equipment, a sound studio and a digitisation suite. You will have the opportunity to be fully trained in how to use this equipment, deepening your understanding of how film and television is produced.

We are also home to the extensive East Anglian Film Archive, a unique resource which you can make use of during your time here. And we have close links with the British Film Institute in London.

Graduates from our MA frequently progress to PhD study and have gone on to rewarding careers in various fields including archiving, academia, journalism, and the film and television industries.
