About

The Film and Television Studies programme of the University of Glasgow offers the opportunity for the critical study of film and television. This well-established programme aims to provide an advanced understanding of the approaches and methodologies in Film & Television Studies and to equip you with core research skills for advanced study in this field.

Overview

Why this programme

  • You will be studying in Glasgow, one of the leading media cities in the UK, and be based at our Gilmorehill Centre, with its own cinema as well as extensive collection of audiovisual and digital resources.
  • The Gilmorehill Centre is home to the international journal Screen and hosts the annual Screen conference every summer, attracting leading names in film and television studies from across the world. You will have the opportunity to participate in the conference as well as to engage with guest speakers from the academy and media industries throughout the year.
  • The Film and Television Studies programme of the University of Glasgow is particularly relevant as preparation for further postgraduate research in film and television. However, it also facilitates contact and critical engagement with film, television and creative arts organisations in Glasgow, through site visits and guest speakers.
  • The programme is forward-thinking in its approach to issues of equality, diversity and inclusivity. It recognises the inequalities that have developed within film and television studies and offers a curriculum designed to challenge the status quo.
  • The programme is one of very few in the UK that places an equal emphasis on television.
  • You will be able to socialise and collaborate with the Film Curation and Filmmaking and Media Arts students who are also taught out of Gilmorehill Centre.

Career prospects

The programme provides an excellent foundation for an academic career in this field and we provide support and guidance on PhD applications and funding opportunities if you are considering this path.

While the MLitt is a good training for PhD study, graduates go on to a range of careers in the media and creative industries including film education, festival management and programming, and arts administration as well as to research roles in television, academia, or the public sector.

Positions held by recent graduates include Celebrity Management Consultant, Director and University Teacher.
