The MA in Visual Anthropology offers a unique combination of anthropological theory and visual practice. It provides you with a strong foundation for producing visual work informed by anthropology. http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-visual-anthropology/

This programme takes an inclusive approach to the definition of visual anthropology – it approaches the sub-field through the study of the politics and aesthetics of representation, documentary and ethnographic film, and anthropological perspectives on art. As a practice-oriented MA, there is a clear emphasis on applying anthropological knowledge to the actual making of visual artefacts, and not just their analysis.

The MA is open to students with a range of backgrounds in anthropology and related fields. As a graduate, you will be well-placed to pursue a career in visual anthropology (be it research- or practice-oriented) as well as to bring an anthropological sensibility to the visual to other disciplines.

You will be taught through lectures, seminars and hands-on training in the use of digital camcorders, sound recording equipment and video editing. Assessment includes written essays for the theory modules, practical assignments, and a final visual project in the form of a 20-minute film.

The programme is currently taught by Dr Ricardo Leizaola, Dr Isaac Marrero-Guillamón, Dr Mao Mollona, Professor Stephen Nugent, and Dr Chris Wright.

Why Bradford?

Bradford is rapidly growing as a centre for the study of film.

Our partnership with local and national institutions such as the National Media Museum (NMeM), the BBC and City of Film (Bradford was the first UNESCO World City of Film) means that our students can easily engage in film opportunities, events and initiatives. Our students have access to the NMeM collections, exhibitions, industry events, film programmes and festivals and have the opportunity to produce content for a range of organisations through our Digital Working Academy and for submission at film festivals.

We have a programme of world-class speakers brought in to deliver talks and masterclasses and provide bursaries for students to attend relevant film festivals and showcases.

The MA Independent Filmmaking programme is not a ‘conventional’ film programme providing training for either narrow specialist skills or the production of 35mm feature films. Rather, it will fully prepare you for the ‘brave new world’ of film and video production in the digital age.

In the School of Media, Design and Technology we are active in getting students real work experience to coincide with their degree to develop a vast portfolio of work throughout their studies with us. To support this we have established a Digital Media Working Academy in facilitating students to work on film, television, interactive media, games and animation projects. The academy delivers up to 50 projects per year for a variety of companies, enabling students to add work experience to their CV whilst working in a professional environment.

Our partner, the National Media Museum, offers our students added value in its world-class research archives, academic and industrial conferences and symposia, screenings, festivals and exhibitions.

These opportunities make Bradford a truly exceptional place to study and engage with all aspects of independent film production.

Learning activities and assessment

The MA Independent Filmmaking programme uses a variety of learning and teaching strategies, all of which are intended to facilitate to development of independent learning. After some initial theoretical, research and creative modules, practice will be facilitated through a series of core and optional modules that help you develop your own project ideas in partnership with tutors and supervisors. A great deal of autonomy is integrated into this programme whilst maintaining as much of a taught component as is necessary for theoretical and contextual studies.

Learning and teaching strategies include formal lectures, practical workshops, seminar and tutorial work. The types of assessment that these strategies involve (discursive essays, oral presentations, assessment of practical videographic and photographic/still image projects etc.) will allow you to effectively and independently integrate theory, creativity and practice, a key aim of the programme. As is common practice in arts and media education, and due to the creative nature and negotiated aspects of the programme, formal examinations are not used as assessments.

Career support and prospects

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

This course will prepare you for a career in film and television production in research, content creation, scriptwriting, camera, sound, lighting, editing, studio and location management, production management, producing and directing. Graduates have also gone on to develop their own independent film companies and teacher training.

Study Support

The Programme Leader is the academic tutor responsible for each students enrolled onto the programme. Students are expected to meet twice per semester with their Programme Leader, in a timetabled slot, but have the opportunity to see them more often via a weekly, drop-in office hour.
