Course content

This taught programme is organised around aspects of British, American, European, and Eastern Cinemas. You will examine how film texts relate to their historical, social, and cultural contexts through a variety of critical and theoretical approaches. These include, for example, aspects that examine the recent re-emergence of aesthetics as an important cinematic discourse, or the implications of 9/11 for film and its audiences.

You will also participate in a Writing for Academic Success module, which will enable you independently to conduct a research project to a publishable standard as part of your MA programme. You will be encouraged to participate in postgraduate conferences and have opportunities to contribute to the University’s seminar programme.

By agreement with your course tutor, it is possible to study a combination of modules from other pathway routes, including Media, Popular Culture, and Conflict Studies and so focus on particular areas relevant to your research interests.
The programme provides the opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary investigation of various aspects of cinema and moving image culture, drawing on a variety of theoretical perspectives.

It offers opportunities for more specialised study, e.g. European Art Cinema

As well as developing students’ abilities for independent critical thinking, and academic writing, the MA Film Studies at Wolverhampton draws on the research activities of its highly specialised staff who are well established in the field.
Overall, this course therefore engages with contemporary issues and emerging new cinemas as well as established film theory.

It also offers unique training for teachers and lecturers in Film and Media Studies as well as providing opportunities for progression to MPhil/ PhD in Film Studies.
