The MPhil in Film and Screen Studies at Cambridge provides advanced training in study of the theory and history of film and other screen media in a vibrant interdisciplinary context. The moving image is explored in relation to the development of modern and contemporary culture, and to the history and theory of other media (literature, music, the visual arts, architecture, the digital). Students are immersed in a research environment that emphasises work on geopolitics, early cinema, art cinema and the avant-garde, theory, aesthetics, and gender and sexuality. The MPhil is offered by the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics (MMLL) as a nine-month full-time period of research and introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge.
The course aims:
Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK High II.i Honours Degree.
If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.
Applicants with degrees in film or media studies and related disciplines are encouraged to apply, as are students with backgrounds in literary studies, art history and other areas.
Although admissions interviews are generally not held, an interview will be held prior to recommending an offer of admission in some cases.
