About

University College London (UCL) was the first university to establish a Film Studies Programme in the UK. We have particular research strengths in cinema history and in an exceptionally broad range of cinemas. 

Overview

Our core faculty utilise a wide array of theoretical approaches to screen media in the classroom and in their research: from film theory and political economy to cultural studies and critical media studies. We offer modules in cinemas from Europe, East Asia, Africa and the Americas.

The Film Studies programme from University College London (UCL) covers the history of cinema and a wide variety of global cinemas, and related conceptual approaches to the study of screen media. 

It is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge of both the history of cinema and media and its contemporary developments, and with the skills, concepts, methods and theories required for the study of cinema and media at graduate level.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and film and video screenings. The core modules are assessed by essays and examinations, which together count for 20% of the final mark. Optional modules are assessed by essays (40%), and the dissertation makes up the final 40%.

Careers

Graduates from the MA in Film Studies have pursued various careers, including: academic research and teaching; careers within media arts (writing, directing, editing); print and media journalism; arts and museum management; multimedia authoring and digital design; film preservation and curating.
