    Year one

    You will learn the skills necessary to acquire a broad understanding of film and television as distinct media. You will consider the history of the development of the cinema from the late nineteenth century to the present day, encompassing both Hollywood and alternative regimes of representation. You will also look at the separate development of the television medium, with particular emphasis upon the televisual, or that which is specific to the medium. Furthermore, you will acquire a set of analytic frameworks that will enable you to begin to perceive continuities across the two media.

    In addition, the two compulsory Art History core modules in Year one, Introduction to Art History 1 and 2, will help students reflect on the nature of Art History as a discipline, and introduce them to a range of methods and problems of historical and visual analysis of individual artworks in specific contexts.

    Year two

    The programme is designed to enable you to deepen and enhance your understanding of key critical and theoretical paradigms in the study of the production, circulation and cultural reception of film and television. The course explores the way in which film and television converge in the contemporary media landscape. Students will also have the opportunity to build on their knowledge and understanding of art history through a series of courses and options, covering a wide-ranging number of topics spanning the past and recent development of art.

    Final year

    Under the guidance of a research-active member of staff, you will write a dissertation in Film and Television Studies and choose from a range of specialist option modules in both film studies and art history.
