Film and Television Studies

One of the longest-established and most prestigious degrees of its kind in the country, our BA in Film and Television Studies will provide you with an opportunity to explore these two hugely influential mass media art forms in depth. Your degree will be focused on those cult hits and global franchises that define the market today. In your first year you’ll cover all the essentials in the subject. In your second and third years you’ll choose from a wide array of modules, enabling you to specialise in the areas that interest you the most. These range from the earliest experiments in moving pictures to modern multimedia franchises. You’ll also choose from creative practice options in areas such as making short films and working in TV studio production, deepening your knowledge of how film and television texts are produced. You’ll develop many transferable skills on this degree course, including high-level research and communication skills, team working, leadership, and self-management, all of which open up a wide variety of careers. Our Film, Television and Media Studies department is recognised as a leading centre for the study of British, Hollywood and Asian cinemas, popular film and television genres, and feminist approaches to media. We’re home to the extensive East Anglian Film Archive - a unique resource which you can make use of during your time here. We also have close links with the British Film Institute in London. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you’ll be introduced to the major debates in film and television studies. At the same time, you’ll develop the key skills needed to analyse both these media using contemporary and historical examples. **Year 2** You’ll refine your academic knowledge and sharpen your analytical tools in modules covering topics such as film theory and theorising television. You’ll be able to experiment with film and video production, delve into the Hollywood studio system and investigate animation from Mickey Mouse to contemporary anime. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete an internship. Previous students have undertaken placements with local radio stations, television production companies and the East Anglian Film Archive, among others. **Year 3** At this stage you’ll specialise, choosing modules according to your personal interests from gender to genre. You’ll also develop your research skills in our dissertation module which includes a period of supervised independent study. You’ll have the opportunity to undertake a media practice project, producing creative work (film, TV, audio, print, advertising, digital) in response to an academic problem. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
