Masters degrees in Film & Photography train students in multiple disciplines associated with the Film and Photography industry, such as visual and audio recording, production and directing.
Taught MA and MFA courses are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.
Courses in this field are highly diverse and allow you to focus your interest in a number of specialisms. From visual arts such as animation and CGI (computer generated imagery), to sound recording and audio effects, you can find your niche within the Film & Photography industry.
Some courses will offer vocational, practical training specialisms such as Photography for portraiture, or Film techniques for specific genres. Other courses offer a more theoretical approach, combining literature, theory and analysis exploring historical and sociocultural influences across different disciplines of Film & Photography.
Careers vary greatly, and may include the direct production of films and photographs as an individual practitioner, or involve other roles with production companies such as sound and lighting technicians, scriptwriting, or set design.
