The MA in Screening Europe builds on the research expertise in European film and television across Media and Communication Studies and the School of Arts and Humanities. The programme offers a wide-ranging and innovative approach to the subject. Instead of exploring European screens nation by nation – the more traditional approach – we adopt a thematic examination, allowing for a comparative analysis of European film and television by focusing instead on a variety of key topics such as: Celtic Screens, Screening Totalitarianism, The European Metropolis, Film Adaptation, The Gendered Screen and Cinematic Dialogues with the World. In addition, you will have the chance to take practical modules in Screenwriting, and Interviewing and Reviewing, which reflects our belief in the benefits of combining theory and practice. By virtue of its interdisciplinary emphasis, the MA should appeal to students from subject backgrounds such as Film and Media, Modern Languages and Creative Arts, from the UK and overseas.
All students will take two compulsory modules: Study and Research Skills in the Arts: European Stage and Screen, and Screenwriting. Options on offer might include:
•The European Metropolis
•The Gendered Screen
•Cinematic Dialogues with the World
•Interviewing and Reviewing
The provision of practical modules in Screenwriting and Interviewing and Reviewing reflect our belief in combining theory and practice in our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
