Whether you’ve studied film and media before or are simply passionate about the field, this MA in Film Studies from the University of East Anglia will give you the skills to seek a career in the media, arts and related cultural industries or further PhD study.
You’ll jump straight in and explore the history, political significance and aesthetics of a global range of cinema, with teaching from award-winning lecturers and exposure to the most innovative and contemporary thinking.
In the Film, Television and Media Studies department our research and teaching is focused on the relationship between film, television and other media, and the creative and cultural contexts in which they are produced and consumed. We are recognised as a leading centre for the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres, media consumption and feminist approaches to media.
Your studies will come to life in a number of different ways. As well as lectures, seminars and film screenings, you’ll have access to our state-of-the-art Media Suite, packed with cutting-edge media technologies including editing suites, cameras, sound equipment, sound studio and a digitisation suite. You will have the opportunity to be fully trained in how to use this equipment, deepening your understanding of how film and television is produced.
We are also home to the extensive East Anglian Film Archive, a unique resource which you can make use of during your time here. And we have close links with the British Film Institute in London.
Graduates from our MA frequently progress to PhD study or have gone on to rewarding careers in various fields including archiving, academia, journalism, and in the film and television industries.
