This course is designed for students who have firm PhD study plans and feel that they need to develop their knowledge of fields which is not covered by our taught modules in order to prepare for their proposed PhD project.
The MA for Research comprises of three taught modules, plus one independent study module designed in consultation with a supervisor and dissertation. In the past, a selection of the following option modules have been offered: The City in Film and Television; History and Memory in Italian Cinema; Journeys and Landscapes in Film and Television; Sound Cultures; Television History and Aesthetics; and Textual Analysis and Film Style.
The programme includes dedicated sessions in Graduate Skills that will equip you with the necessary academic skills to excel in Master’s assignments and PhD applications. Our postgraduates have progressed into diverse and often creative roles in film and television production, journalism, marketing, archiving education and publishing. They have also found employment in the voluntary sector, and in major arts and cultural organisations. We also have an outstanding record of MA students going on to doctoral study and employment in a number of prestigious HE institutions around the world.
