Course content

This course allows you to think about the critical and creative relationships between film, photography and the media while developing your skills to produce projects of your own.

You'll complete a major independent project, supported by modules that put your practice into the context of contemporary debates. You’ll explore the different critical approaches to the making and consumption of photography and film, to inform the short film and photography projects you’ll work on.

The flexibility of this course allows you to choose from optional modules that suit your personal and career aspirations. You could study cultural policy, international film industries, film and TV writing, feminism in the media and more.

The content of the course modules is informed by the research interests and practice of academic staff who teach them.

Our School has a range of fantastic facilities to support your studies. Our 58-seat cinema is equipped with Dolby Digital sound, high-definition projection facilities and projectors for 16mm and 35mm film.

You can work on your own projects in our 44 editing suites, equipped with Avid Media Composer editing software and Adobe Creative Cloud. Our fully equipped TV studio has a large green screen area, lighting and photo-flash facilities. We have a track and dolly, sliders, Glidecam, cranes and a photographic darkroom.

We run a loans service where you can borrow HD digital camcorders and Canon stills cameras to help with your project work.
