About the course

The MA Film and Television Production degree’s mission is to provide an environment for students to develop their vision and use their voice as a filmmaker.

Through a culture of filmmaking practice, students will regularly undertake shoots in which they explore multiple styles of cinema and television drama and documentary. With a strong focus on feature film, high-end drama and feature documentary, students are challenged to produce creative ideas, scripts and shorts across each week.

Student Profile(s)

Juliana Miliut

‘I learnt everything I needed to know to step into the film industry in a successful way on the MA Film and Television.
The tutors at Hertfordshire are industry professionals who create leaders, not followers, encouraging students to think outside the box and develop their talent and creativity.’


Freddie Gerrard-Abbott

‘The MA helped me gain my own technical and artistic skills so I could approach challenges with confidence, as well as
define myself as a filmmaker. I recently participated in a comedy web series as cinematographer and editor. It was an extremely fun project and I wouldn’t have had the confidence to do it without the MA.’


Titilayo Raji

‘I can whole-heartedly state that learning the art of filming at the University of Hertfordshire has given me the skills I needed to become a professional practitioner. The course has a fine balance between theory and practice – you’re told where to point the camera, as well as why. It’s run by astute professionals that can rival any top film school and, ultimately, I believe it has fully prepared me for the world of film making.’


Sayyed Sabbagh

‘The first two semesters offer a combination of sessions on producing, directing and writing as well as theory sessions that encourage us to analyse and discuss films in depth. In the third semester we independently produce, direct or write a film and tutors are always available to support students. I feel this course has really helped me gain the wisdom I needed to direct professionally.’
