This popular and well-established programme combines the academic study of film, television and digital media with the chance to develop your creative skills in a range of practice-oriented modules. It will give you a solid grounding in core knowledge and key skills that will equip you to work in the creative and cultural industries.
You will learn how technology, business and human creativity have forged the contemporary media world in which we live. You will be challenged to engage critically and imaginatively with a wide variety of forms and styles from around the world and from different historical periods. And you will have the chance to study screenwriting, cinematography, sound design and digital editing, from both practical and critical points of view.
Our teaching staff are passionate about film and media; many are highly ranked researchers in their field, while others have extensive practical experience in the media industries. They will change the way that you see the world around you, and help you to acquire new skills and develop your intellectual confidence.
This course is also available for full-time evening study over three years.
