Film Studies at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin is an exciting area of study. Along with our undergraduate Film Studies programme, there is a vibrant postgraduate and research culture. The M.Phil. in Film Studies - Theory, History, Practice plays a central role in that thriving postgraduate community, offering students the opportunity to blend film and digital media theory, as well as history and practice. Many of our graduates go on to further study at PhD level, and others pursue careers in the film industry, in film journalism and other related areas in the arts and media.
From the outset, questions of history, theory and context combine with issues of close analysis and interpretation. Modules in screenwriting, creative documentary and editing allow students to balance film and digital media theory with practice. In addition, the course aims to develop the key transferable skills required for further postgraduate study. These include dissertation preparation, time management, and oral and written presentation, alongside an emphasis on independent critical thinking.
