    Year one

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

    The degree provides a broad-based music curriculum engaging with a range of areas and repertoires enabling students to acquire musical knowledge and skills as well as to develop their cultural and intellectual understanding of the subject.

    Year two

The music side offers a programme that is appropriately challenging and with a modern, wide-ranging approach, seeking a balance between the historical and technical dimensions of the discipline and the current issues and practices that are relevant to the situation of music in the contemporary world.

    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 music.
