Unique in continental Europe, the Film Studies track of the MA in Media and Culture aims to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the aesthetics and history of audiovisual media, with film occupying a central role.
This is not a film production programme. Students who complete this degree gain a thorough theoretical understanding of the various facets of cinema.
