Course content

The MLitt in Film Studies is a one-year taught programme run by the Department of Film Studies. The programme approaches the study of film through a varied intellectual approach, exploring cinema in a global context. You will discover filmmaking cultures outside the canon and examine classic film through new cultural, theoretical and historical perspectives.

Highlights

  • Film Studies approaches the study of film through a varied intellectual approach, exploring cinema in a global context. You will discover filmmaking cultures outside the canon and examine classic films through new cultural, theoretical and historical perspectives.
  • Film Studies receives regular visits from high-profile film scholars, critics and film industry personalities. Most recently, acclaimed film director Joe Russo held a workshop open to all students in December 2015.
  • Students have the opportunity to present their work at the annual postgraduate student colloquium in May, at which a visiting professor provides them with feedback on their work. The Film Studies postgraduate community mixes MLitt and PhD students in friendly and collaborative ways.

Teaching format

The MLitt degree involves the completion of 120 credits of taught modules (from September to May), which are assessed through essays, a presentation and a dissertation. The taught element of the programme consists of a two-semester compulsory module, which focuses on training in research methods and covers a range of crucial topics in Film Studies, plus two specialist modules. All modules provide students with the opportunity to transfer and apply theoretical knowledge and research skills to a concrete level of intellectual investigation, focusing on the creation of meaning and aesthetic value in the context of global dynamics of cultural production and distribution.

Individual study and research is encouraged through small seminars of four to ten students and tutorials of one-to-one supervision. All modules are taught by the members of staff, and students will have the opportunity to have worked with all of them by the end of their course of study. Classes and screening take place mostly at the Byre Theatre.

Modules

Each module typically comprises:

  • weekly two-hour seminars, plus film screenings
  • 100% coursework assessment.

For more details of each module, including weekly contact hours, teaching methods and assessment, please see the latest module catalogue which is for the 2017–2018 academic year; some elements may be subject to change for 2018 entry.
