Students go on to choose electives from a secondary disciplinary perspective (e.g., literature, history, sociology, political science, philosophy, art history, music, etc.). Students may work within a particular film genre or take a thematic investigative approach to a number of film genres.
Graduate learners will analyse the dialogue between culture and cinema, heighten their understanding of multiculturalism, disciplinary integration and contemporary thought and interpretation as ‘revealed’ in films.
Who Should Do This?The MA in Film Studies is for students who intend to develop professional careers in film, screenwriting, the humanities, history, journalism, etc. (all of which may include teaching at the college level). Some of these areas will require additional study at the Ph.D level. Students wishing to become film historians should plan on proceeding to the doctoral programme, and structure their Masters programme accordingly.
Entry requires a recognised undergraduate degree. Beyond the general requirements of Warnborough College Ireland, no other general pre-requisites are required. Some students may be exempt from certain modules (courses) in the curriculum, based on prior coursework, and/or a demonstrated knowledge of film studies. Modules taken at any time during the learner’s career may be counted toward the degree, if they fulfill appropriate requirements. Students who already hold a BA or BFA degree in Film Studies may be able to replace some of the foundation modules required with electives.
