The MA programme in film studies is an academic course that pursues advanced analysis of cinema. It assumes that students have attained a degree of expertise before starting and will aim to deal with the familiar in a more sophisticated manner and the unfamiliar in theoretical, historical and material terms.
This MA takes advantage of the department's expertise in film studies, reflected in a 5 research rating and a concentration of members of staff publishing material about film. Among other subject matter, this course includes close analysis of the Alien films (in Film Text Analysis) and cult and exploitation film (in Film and Cultural Value).
The Film Studies Master's degree has two parts. The first consists of four modules (Film Text Analysis, British Film History, Research Methods and Film and Cultural Value). Part One must be successfully completed before proceeding to the second part, the dissertation. In certain circumstances, students may be eligible for a Diploma or Certificate if they are unable to proceed to part two. The dissertation is a substantial piece of scholarly research, on a subject of your own choice, chosen and discussed in detail with a lecturer in the department.
