MA in Film Studies
Over the past three decades film studies has developed as one of the most exciting, most varied and most intellectually stimulating disciplines within higher education, both in Britain and abroad. Film has been studied for many years at Sussex within a range of contexts, including Media Studies, English, History of Art, and modern languages. It is currently undergoing an exciting expansion, with the appointment of several Film Studies specialists to the faculty and the launch of a new BA programme in Film Studies in 2003-4. In 2005 the MA in Film Studies was recalibrated to reflect these new developments, with the aim of establishing it as one of the leading postgraduate programmes in the field within the UK. The MA in Film Studies provides an opportunity to explore a wide range of films, theoretical debates and social, cultural and historical contexts. Covering diverse cinematic cultures - past and present, mainstream and alternative, Hollywood and world cinemas - the programme introduces students to an advanced knowledge of the expressive and representational possibilities of cinema, and of the history and variety of film scholarship itself. The MA in Film Studies draws on the expertise of distinguished faculty in the Department of Media and Film, which includes leading scholars with international reputations who have published agenda-setting work on a wide range of film and media topics.
