Film Studies and Media - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Film Studies and Media. Film Studies and Media combines the intensive study of film and other media forms, with the opportunity to do creative practice in film and video, photography and new media. You will gain the analytical, critical and technical skills vital for understanding and working in today’s media-rich world. Film and Media Studies are the study of screen art and communication forms that have become central to every aspect of contemporary life. Alongside the detailed analytical and historical study of film, you will analyse diverse cultural texts such as television, photography, advertisements, magazines, digital media and news. You will investigate the relationship between historical and cultural movements and media and film production, exploring the ways in which these forms are products of their time and place. You will combine the technical study of film and media with the opportunity to produce work of your own, ranging from photography and video to magazines online. We also provide opportunities to take work placements through our links to the creative and media industries. By the time you graduate, you will be ready to take an active and creative role in the media and cultural industries. You will develop skills in communicating ideas to different audiences, analysis, and critical thinking. Our recent graduates have found employment in a range of careers such as television production, the film industry, journalism, publishing, web design, teaching and acting as well as postgraduate study.
