We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Film Directing offer advanced training in the skills to manage the logistics of film production, including management of staff and equipment.
Taught MA and MFA courses are typical for this subject, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Film Studies.
Courses in this field provide you with a deep understanding of the significant role a director has in relation to other crew members on a given production. Through applied practise, you will develop your skills and technical abilities, advancing your knowledge in the operations and logistics of Film Directing.
Adaptation and collaboration are key components of these courses. You will work with a range of writers, producer, actors, designers and technicians on project for various kinds of film. This could include science and natural history documentaries, feature films, television commercials and television programmes, and even journalism.
Your expertise will cover a range skills, and will therefore make you suitable for other careers such as cinematography, stage management, set management and exhibition curation.
