Film and Media Studies
Media and Film Studies provide students with vital tools that are necessary to understanding the media’s significance and its power. These courses involve the study of contemporary and historical texts from an analytical approach. Over the two-years both courses will enable you to study a range of media and film forms from different time periods, countries and cultures.
Film Studies considers your role as a spectator in the creation of meaning and examines film as an art form, a storytelling medium and how films reflect key social and political contexts. Film Studies not only enables you to understand how films both make meaning and reflect wider society it will also develop your own filmmaking skills to put theory into practice.
Media Studies provides you with the opportunity to explore a wide range of media texts, from television programmes, music videos and magazines to video games, vlogs and social media. This course will enable you to develop an understanding of key critical debates in the subject exploring the role that the media plays in shaping our understanding of events and issues, as well as looking at the cultural and institutional contexts in which media production and consumption take place. You will also have the opportunity to put theory into practise through planning and producing a range of media products.
