About the course
This innovative course will enable you to explore a range of film and television forms and the social and industrial contexts in which they are produced and consumed.
You will develop the critical and technological vocabularies and theoretical frameworks necessary to analyse film and television texts and contexts.
Up to 40 per cent of your programme can come from practical modules, where you will be able to benefit from our new investment in cameras, editing suites with Avid and Final Cut Pro software programmes, and dedicated teaching space. We also offer excellent technical support.
By bringing together theory and practice, our programme encourages you to develop critical perspectives on the creation of meaning and to reflect analytically on your practical work. You will also benefit from strong links between our teaching and staff research, which means you will often be taught by leading experts in particular aspects of film and television and gain first-hand from their own work (for more detail on this, see the 'special features' tab above).
From Hong Kong cinema to Hollywood and from science fiction to documentary, Film and TV Studies at Brunel University London examines a wide range of recent and contemporary production for big and small screen. The programme also offers thorough grounding in the history of film and television.
Popular formats such as horror, comedy and reality TV can be studied, and throughout the programme students are encouraged to analyse both mainstream and alternative practices.
Students also have the option of completing a practical dissertation in their final year. All practical modules include theoretical components – this means that you are required to analyse your own practical work and you will be assessed on both.
- You will develop conceptual and theoretical skills necessary to engage with film and television products.
- You will gain understanding in how film and television products work at aesthetic, social-cultural and institutional levels.
- You will acquire key practical abilities and transferable skills vital in the contemporary job market.
