Course content

At the beginning of the 21st century the cultural sector was playing an increasingly significant role in public policies; politically, socially and economically. The cultural industries, such as the film industry, are now a particular focus of this attention because of their potential to bridge the perceived gap between culture and commerce, that is, their capacity simultaneously to enhance cultural life and generate wealth. In this context, there is a strong awareness of the importance of professionalism in cultural management. The MA Film and Cultural Management is designed for students who wish to combine study of film at postgraduate level with a knowledge of cultural management. This course provides a framework through which the contemporary cultural sector can be analysed and understood; it situates the film industry in that context and at the same time provides theoretical knowledge of film and its industrial dimensions.

Apply for the MA Film and Cultural Management degree and examine the importance that film has on society. Study film policy in a variety of comparable and contrasting national and global contexts and use the modules learned on this course for a career in the cultural management sector. Take these skills towards a vocation as an archivist, film critic or curator.

The programme aims to facilitate your engagement with contemporary debates of current concern in the cultural sector, to develop your critical awareness of issues and debates in film studies and cultural management, and to reflect upon different methodologies and their effective use in applied research. You will be encouraged to develop your own research interests, applying the skills and resources you acquire during the programme. At the same time, we foster a collaborative ethos in which students exchange knowledge and ideas. The emphasis is on progression towards shaping the direction of your degree yourself, rather than relying on your tutors to set the agenda for you.
