Designed to develop the skills required for the ever-changing, fast developing new media landscape, this exciting course fosters individuality, confidence and creativity. Focusing on the processes of making and critiquing media that is socially, politically, economically and ethically engaged, students are equipped with an awareness of the contingencies of the latest practical, technological and theoretical developments within the profession.

The MA in Film and Media Production at Coventry University  has a strong international focus across its cohort, teaching staff, course materials and its ethos. Influences and interventions that focus on international aspects build strong employability in graduates who emerge with a unique skillset that make them attractive to future employers and organisations at every level.

You will experiment and develop new forms that take account of the analogue world and new digital tools that, when placed together, infer possibilities that are innovative, raise questions and have impact. The course will culminate into a self-directed Final Project or Dissertation, encouraging you to employ critical questioning and enabling you to take control of your education.

You have the opportunity to join our community of critical thinkers and makers, taught by staff who are themselves film makers, authors and artists, who continually challenge traditional and emergent practices in their own work.

The MA Film and Media Production frames the emergent through actively questioning how we have arrived at current media landscapes. The fundamental stance of the MA is the establishment of a space that encourages a critique of media through making media which is fully conversant with new hybrid forms.
