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.
