Course programme

Years 1 and 2 provide a theoretical, critical and historical grounding. At Honours you will have the opportunity to combine core and optional courses involving more specialist study via these approaches, and to explore the role of practical work in enhancing understanding of both media.

Year 1

You will take two courses, which introduce techniques of film and television analysis, offer perspectives on film and television history, and examine the changing structures of cinema and television as industries:

  • Looking, listening, reading
  • Key moments in the development of film and television
Year 2

You will extend this study with more detailed consideration of key theoretical concepts and historical methods, studying film and television alongside one another in two courses:

  • Spectatorship, audiences and identities
  • History, aesthetics and genre

You will also study other subjects in years 1 and 2: see Degrees in Arts, Life Sciences, Science and Social Sciences.

Years 3 and 4

If you progress to Honours (years 3 and 4) your studies will consist of a combination of compulsory core courses (Film analysis, Television analysis, Media and cultural policy) and specialist options. These will typically include courses devoted to:

  • particular periods and places (eg contemporary television drama, postwar Japanese cinema, Scottish film and television)
  • genres (eg animation, amateur cinema, documentary film and television)
  • theory and practice of film and television (eg digital media, television production, audiovisual team project, sound and film)
  • specific themes (eg screen performance, cinematic journeys, children’s television).
