Course programme

With high-profile work placements and a unique balance of theory and practice, we’ll expand your knowledge of the media and give you the critical and creative skills you need to make your own films. You’ll even get to see them screened at a professional arts venue.

Want to broaden your understanding of media and develop your filmmaking skills?

On this course you’ll explore cutting-edge media and film theory along with historical perspectives, and develop specialist skills like filmmaking, animation and creative publishing. Our film modules will allow you to investigate film-making practices and critical approaches from all over the world, spanning the history of cinema. You’ll get the chance to make explorative, creative, and independent short films in video, animation, or 16mm formats, and develop your interests in film practice, film reviewing, film theory, and screenwriting.

You’ll also have the chance to show your film to the public at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse.

Our media studies modules integrate practice-based learning with media production. You’ll investigate topics like media institutions, relationships between media, power and economics, social and digital media and contemporary television, while developing skills in media research methods, digital media, writing, publishing, radio and video production.

There’ll also be plenty of extra-curricular events to help with your learning and your future career.  Terrence Davies, Peter Gidal, Malcolm Le Grice, Henry K. Miller, Jane Parker, Lucy Reynolds, João Moreira Salles, Steven Shaviro, Margaret Salmon and Catherine Wheatley have all featured as our guest speakers, and we regularly host events like festivals, conferences and productions, which you can get involved with behind the scenes as well.
