Introduction

The BA (Hons) Film and Television degree is taught by research-active academics working in a variety of fields including national and heritage cinema, gender and sexuality, minority representation, children's TV, and shlock cinema.

You will be expected to advance arguments about film and television texts and the context of production, and to use critical and independent analysis to inform and evaluate production. The programme is designed to offer a choice of areas of study from the second year onwards so that you can shape your own learning according to your interests and ambitions. This theory-focused programme also offers practical modules so that you can engage more deeply with theory through practice in LSFM’s state-of-the-art production facilities with support from experienced media practitioners.

How You Study

You will have the opportunity to learn and develop through lectures, workshops, seminars, group projects, screenings, research and an independent study.

In the first year, four core modules introduce the theory, history, analysis and practice of film and television. During the second year, you can tailor your studies by choosing from a wide range of optional modules. In the third year, you can opt for a theory-only pathway, and can further specialize according to your interests by choosing from a palette of optional modules. All students complete an independent research study in the third year, developed and written under supervision by our research-active staff. You also have the choice of a final creative project in Film, Television or Script, or a project in the MACE archives.

During the second year, there are opportunities to take part in exchange programmes with one of our partner universities in Europe or the USA. Costs relating to the USA exchange programme can be found in the fees tab. Further information relating to exchanges within Europe can be found here:

Contact Hours and Independent Study

Contact hours may vary for each year of a degree. When engaging in a full-time degree students should, at the very least, expect to undertake a minimum of 37 hours of study each week during term time (including independent study) in addition to potentially undertaking assignments outside of term time. The composition and delivery for the course breaks down differently for each module and may include lectures, seminars, workshops, independent study, practicals, work placements, research and one-to-one learning.

University-level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend two - three hours in independent study.

Please see the Unistats data, using the link at the bottom of this page, for specific information relating to this course in terms of course composition and delivery, contact hours and student satisfaction.

Level 1

Analysing Moving Image Texts (Core)

This module offers an opportunity to study and apply a wide range of methods of textual analysis to film and television texts. Through group discussion and seminar exercises students can develop a fluency in these analytical methods. This is underpinned by a range of complementary subjects which act as an introduction to the critical approaches taken in year two of the programme.

Film and TV History 1 (Core)

Film and TV History 1: is an overview of early cinema from the age of invention to the widespread adoption of sound in the 1930s and the beginning of experimentation with TV. It focuses on Hollywood, to chart and analyse the ascendancy and dominance of Hollywood in the cinema, and in approaches to cinema.

Film and TV History 2 (Core)

Film and TV History 2 is a survey of European film movements in context. It charts, analyses and reassesses the significance and novelty of, and the role of TV in the emergence of the various European new waves from Italian Neorealism through the French New Wave to the British New Wave and Free Cinema and New German Cinema.

Mediation & Representation 1 (Core)

This module aims to promote critical engagement with key Media Studies concepts and methods. It is organised around an examination of critical studies, media contexts and media forms and aims to enable students to develop a critical understanding of key theoretical concepts and critical approaches that have informed studies of media production and consumption, particularly during the latter half of the 20th century. Consideration will also be given to significant technological changes, emerging during the closing decades of the millennium, that have radically impacted on methods of production and distribution in the global mass-media market and how these are being accommodated, or not, through new paradigms in Media Studies (as an Academic subject area) as well as economic, regulatory and legal frameworks.

Production Planning (Core)

This module aims to introduce practical techniques, using multi-camera studio methods. Basic production organisation, script and planning methods are developed alongside critical and analytical understanding of television as a medium.

Script, Screenwriting and Realisation (Core)

This module gives an introduction to writing and storytelling for screen based media production. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own creative writing techniques informed by critical concepts. Creative exercises and independent application culminate in the production of a short film script followed through to its realisation.

Level 2

Analysing Film and Television as Industries 1 (Core)

Students will have the opportunity to examine the political, commercial and cultural determinants behind the history, current organisation, and potential futures of the UK audiovisual production environment, including how it relates to the US and Europe.

British Television Drama (Option)

Drama is a key component of TV in the UK, carrying out a Public Service function and creating a sense of National Identity. The module considers continuing series (soap operas), drama serials, single plays and television films, situation comedy and comedy drama, underpinned by a survey of critical approaches.

Children’s Film and Television (Option)

This module investigates and analyses the debates about and developments in children’s film and television, largely in the UK but drawing on the USA, for elements of comparison informed by politics, ideology and economics.

Class, Power and Performance on Stage and Screen (Option)

This module draws on the renewed interest in the 21st century in social class by analysing classed identities on stage, TV and in film in a variety of largely iconic texts of the 20th and 21st-centuries. The module begins in the mid-20th century, focusing particularly on the implications of aesthetic form and genre for class construction and performance. Examples of forms, genres and styles include social realism, kitchen-sink drama, the TV sitcom, post-Brechtian, experimental and post-dramatic texts as well as genres such as crime and horror. Key figurations of classed identity include: ‘angry young (wo)men’; the ‘working class Tory’; screen mediations of ‘we’re all middle class now’; ‘upper-class decadence’; the figure of the ‘chav’; ‘prole’ or ‘poverty porn’ and social abjection.

East Asian Cinemas (Option)

A guide to specific films and accompanying theoretical concepts. Key films provide a platform for debating the political, institutional and cultural context of individual cinemas and regions in an increasingly globalised industry where audiences and producers are exposed to a variety of film styles. Critical engagement and debate are encouraged within the broader structure of World Cinema, alongside cultural and globalisation studies.

English for Academic Purposes (media) (Option)

This module aims to support students’ understanding and use of English language in the context of the media, and thereby enhance their ability to meet the demands of academic study at the University of Lincoln.

Film and Television Study Period Abroad (Erasmus) (Option)

The Klagenfurt Erasmus Exchange Programme is an optional module of study for the award of the BA Film & Television degree. As part of the three-year course, some students may study for the duration of Term 1 of Level 2 at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. The target modules of study include areas of practical and theoretical studies comparable with those of Level 2 study for the Film & Television award at Lincoln.

During the term abroad, Lincoln students will be based in the Institute of Media and Communication Studies and will share classes and modules of study with peers from Austria and other European countries. Not only will students be living and socialising in another culture, providing opportunities to study their respective countries, they will also have an opportunity to engage, free-of-charge, in an intensive German-language module for three weeks before term begins (although academic and practice teaching and learning will be in the medium of English for Lincoln exchange students, except in rare instances when a student may be fluent in German).

Film and Television Study Period Abroad (USA) (Option)

The Minnesota State University Moorhead USA Exchange Programme is an optional module for the award of the BA Film and Television Degree. As part of the three-year course, some students may study for the duration of Term 1 of level 2 at Minnesota State University Moorhead USA. The target units of study include areas of practical and theoretical studies comparable with those of Level 2 study for the Film and Television Award at Lincoln.

During the semester abroad, students will share classes and units of study with local students. Not only will students be living and socialising in another 'culture' providing opportunities to study their respective countries, they may also have an opportunity to examine USA media industry practice through optional Internships for exchange students. The Moorhead-Fargo twin cities also offer practical opportunities for students to engage with USA production companies including, Fox, ABC and Prairie Public TV (PBS), all of whom have local bases.

Film Production Projects (Option)

This module aims to enable students to further develop skills in single camera production and apply them to a range of genre projects. Lectures look to present best practice in production techniques and offer stimulus for idea development in production projects. Workshops will target the development of technical skills in camera operation, lighting, sound recording, post production, non-linear editing and multi track facilities as well as creative approaches to production and directing. Seminars aim to provide a programme of student support for production teams conducting a range of creative projects.

Film, Television and Creative Vision (Option)

Three different determinants for a film or broadcast text will be considered - the author, the genre and the production/distribution institution. Students will be given the opportunity to debate the relative importance of these three determinants to a number of case studies. This analysis will be underpinned through a consideration of the development and utility of each of the approaches.

Games Cultures (Option)

Play is a ubiquitous activity, and games (in all their forms) have a long history and an influence that stretches beyond the game-space itself. In recent times, computers (and other trends within media and society) have lead to an exponential growth in the cultural, social and commercial importance of games, which have likewise become more sophisticated, becoming an important media form which has affected other media and culture generally. This critical studies theory module will aim to consider, evaluate and analyse the phenomena of games and game cultures in the 21st century.

Globalisation and Contemporary Culture (Option)

This module aims to provide an overview of conceptual themes and issues within the culture industry and the arts in relation to globalisation. Debates brought forward include: national and cultural identity, global representation, global technologies, multiculturalism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism and global activism channels.

Hollywood Musical (Option)

'The module will look at the history and development of the Hollywood musical as one of Hollywood’s most popular and important film genres, from its beginnings in the early sound era to the integrated musical of the 1940s and 1950s to cult films like The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and more recent successes such as Moulin Rouge (2001), High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008), Mamma Mia! (2008) and La La Land (2016).

We will watch together a number of significant films and will dill discuss structural, stylistic and thematic issues in the context of scholarly literature. Stardom and the function of the star performance will be considered and we will explore the musical’s representation of cultural issues in a variety of contexts such as race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and gender'.

Media, Controversy and Moral Panic (Option)

This module explores the history of media controversy and ‘moral panic’ during the twentieth century. It is designed to introduce students to media texts (especially films and television programmes) that have sparked debate and extreme differences of opinion among audiences in Britain and America. Students will be expected to engage with a range of films, television programmes and primary source material, which may include newspapers and television news broadcasts from the Media Archive of Central England (MACE).

Multi Camera Projects (Option)

This module will include advanced studio production techniques, programme development, planning, script development, role practice, set design, graphics/overlays, lighting and programme running paperwork. Exercises are designed to help students to develop advanced studio practices, facilitating the production of work to an industry standard.

Practices of Listening (Option)

A broad look at audio-culture from the twentieth century to the present, offering challenge and insight to Film & TV specialists. Vision is often privileged, resulting in a relative paucity of language for discussing sound. This problem is addressed, looking at texts from key theorists and practitioners, considering sound not in addition to vision, but independently, in music, radio, art and daily life.

Public Service Broadcasting (Core)

Students are given the opportunity to study the concept, history and possible future of Public Service Broadcasting in the UK. The implications of broadcasting policy and reports from government committees on broadcasting will be considered in relation to the formation of the concept of Public Service Broadcasting.

Realism in Narrative Fiction (Option)

This module aims to develop an understanding of the complex problem of realism in film and media studies as it relates to fictional narrative forms. Students will have the opportunity to engage with academic debates around realist texts and examine these in relation to historical, contemporary and potential examples.

Representing Difference (Option)

Methods of analysis of media representations and approaches to representing difference will be considered in this module as well as issues such as gender, nationality and ethnicity apparent in film & broadcast media. A range of critical approaches will be considered and contrasted and Post-colonial theory and Third Cinema will be utilised in relation to these.

Script and Screenwriting Projects (Option)

Initially elements of craft will be presented in lectures and practised during workshops as students create their own short scripts. Students can develop scripts from an initial idea through to final draft. Students will also have the opportunity to study the craft of writing longer scripts for radio, film and TV, supported by an analysis of the craft of writing for these media.

Society, Aesthetics and Digital Media (Option)

Media are inseparable from the processes by which societies change themselves. However, they can also be conceived as having their own vitality. In other words, media are sites of complex agency. Developments in media technology express and embody mutations of society, power and the human. In relation to a range of social, cultural and political concerns, we will explore how digital media technologies organize our existence, our perception of reality and our capacity to imagine alternative ways of living. Today, as digital media become increasingly interrelated, networked and convergent, we are moving across the ‘form-barrier’ and entering a new, fluid and hybrid post-broadcast media ecology. This module interrogates the transformation and reconfiguration of our everyday lives and experiences in the new media ecology.

Television and Screen Entertainment (Option)

Through a critical examination of contemporary factual television and online culture, this module aims to show that this can be understood as having been dramatically reconfigured in recent years by socio-political and commercial pressures and their associated entertainment values and changing discourses of selfhood.

Women in and at the Movies: Stars, Icons and Audiences (Option)

This module is concerned with the cultural construction of womanhood, the 'female' and notions of femininity: the economic and cultural value of the female film star to Hollywood, the development of female film genres or the feminization of certain genres, how debates about female identity inform models of spectatorship, with respect to both psychoanalysis and ethnography.

Level 3

Exploitation Cinema (Option)

Examines the cultural significance of so-called exploitation films, which can reveal (and revel in) themes, images and narratives suppressed from the mainstream, dealing with lurid, scandalous subjects in a seemingly excessive, gratuitous manner. Some theorists argue that perceived ‘excess’ is a foundation for developing new critical methods, providing a fascinating alternative to approaches more comfortably contained within ‘classical’ systems.

Film and Television Under Pressure (Core)

Investigates current challenges and difficulties facing film and TV and resultant complications in studying them. One-way production and consumption processes compete with non-linear, responsive or interactive “media“ such as the internet, social networking and computer games. Film and TV are stretching to fit these developments, with fascinating, often unpredicable, consequences.

Film/TV Production Project (Option)

One advanced concept-led project or project portfolio using technologies centred upon Single Camera, Multi Camera or Scriptwriting; an opportunity to produce practical work to an advanced level of creativity and to undertake interdisciplinary production with students on other School courses as appropriate.

Hollywood cinema in the 1980s (Option)

Cinema is an integral part of our culture and tells us about society; like any cultural product, cinema does not exist in a vacuum. It communicates ideas, value systems and cultural beliefs, desires, dreams, anxieties, fears and needs of a given society at a given time, and it does so through different constructions of gender, sexualities, whiteness, ethnicity, race, age, social class and cultures. Taking into account a broad range of films and genres (from rom-com, drama and erotic thriller, to animation, musical, neo-noir, action and sci-fi), as well as a variety of theoretical approaches from (but not limited to) feminist film theory, philosophy, post-feminism, psychoanalysis, stardom and cultural studies; and combining textual analysis with background reading, this module will examine and critically evaluate a range of Hollywood films produced and released in the 1980s addressing the relations between their textual form and their cultural context.

Hollywood Cinema in the 70s (Option)

This module surveys and assesses a period that represents a break with a range of ideological, aesthetic and commercial traditions together with a process of retrenchment and recuperation. Post-classical Hollywood saw both films and the industry experience ideological and socio-cultural upheaval, demonstrated through cinematic modes of representation, industrial re-structuring and artistic transformations.

Journalists on the Screen (Option)

The purpose of this module is to examine and critically compare the different representations of journalists to be found in film and assess the relation between these portrayals and continuing moral and political issues faced by the profession. The module expects students to study movies in which journalists are portrayed as leading characters.

Literature, Film and Gender (Option)

This module explores a wide range of gender topics (masculinities, the backlash against feminism, crossdressing, queer theory, and transgendering) through a variety of literary texts and films. Shakespeare, Ibsen, Hardy, and Woolf, are considered alongside more popular fiction by writers such as Susanna Moore, and films, including Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and The Crying Game.

Media Independent Study (Core)

A 10,000-word dissertation is the culmination of the student's undergraduate investigation into the structures and debates surrounding cultural production and takes the form of an extended essay. Regular support and supervision ensures that the chosen subject facilitates involvement with issues relevant to contemporary media practice.

Representing the Unrepresentable (Option)

Schindler’s List (1993) met critical acclaim and commercial success – but furore in some quarters, not only for how it represented the Holocaust but for daring to represent it at all. Using this example as a reference point, the module critically examines several moving picture accounts of the Holocaust in the context of long-standing debates around the nature, ethics, and function of documentary, drama-documentary, and fictionalisation.

Science Fiction in Film and Television (Option)

Analyses the range and diversity of a genre encompassing many highly popular texts. Metaphor and allegory are explored to understand how science fiction has been appreciated and has developed from cult to mainstream acceptance and popularity. Innovation and cross-fertilisation of generic forms are also be considered.

†The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

Additional Costs

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs.

With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost. Where there may be exceptions to this general rule, information will be displayed in a section titled Other Costs below.

Other Costs

There are no mandatory additional activities, which will incur a cost on this course.

Project costs can vary depending on the nature of the practical work chosen by the student. Students are asked to consider costs when proposing a project. There are funds currently available within the School to students at all levels to provide support with such projects.

Study abroad outside of Europe

Exchange students applying to study outside of Europe do not pay tuition fees at their host university.

Participants will usually be responsible for all other costs themselves, including travel, accommodation, visas, insurance, vaccinations and administrative fees at the host institution.

Students going on exchange keep their entitlement to UK sources of funding such as student loans and should apply to their awarding body in the normal way, indicating that they will be studying abroad.

If your time away is a mandatory part of your degree programme, you may be entitled to extra funding. You should ask your funding body about this.

You may also be able to apply to your LEA or the SAAS for further funding to assist with travel expenses - contact them to enquire.

Level 1

Analysing Moving Image Texts (Core)

This module offers an opportunity to study and apply a wide range of methods of textual analysis to film and television texts. Through group discussion and seminar exercises students can develop a fluency in these analytical methods. This is underpinned by a range of complementary subjects which act as an introduction to the critical approaches taken in year two of the programme.

Film and TV History 1 (Core)

Film and TV History 1: is an overview of early cinema from the age of invention to the widespread adoption of sound in the 1930s and the beginning of experimentation with TV. It focuses on Hollywood, to chart and analyse the ascendancy and dominance of Hollywood in the cinema, and in approaches to cinema.

Film and TV History 2 (Core)

Film and TV History 2 is a survey of European film movements in context. It charts, analyses and reassesses the significance and novelty of, and the role of TV in the emergence of the various European new waves from Italian Neorealism through the French New Wave to the British New Wave and Free Cinema and New German Cinema.

Mediation & Representation 1 (Core)

This module aims to promote critical engagement with key Media Studies concepts and methods. It is organised around an examination of critical studies, media contexts and media forms and aims to enable students to develop a critical understanding of key theoretical concepts and critical approaches that have informed studies of media production and consumption, particularly during the latter half of the 20th century. Consideration will also be given to significant technological changes, emerging during the closing decades of the millennium, that have radically impacted on methods of production and distribution in the global mass-media market and how these are being accommodated, or not, through new paradigms in Media Studies (as an Academic subject area) as well as economic, regulatory and legal frameworks.

Production Planning (Core)

This module aims to introduce practical techniques, using multi-camera studio methods. Basic production organisation, script and planning methods are developed alongside critical and analytical understanding of television as a medium.

Script, Screenwriting and Realisation (Core)

This module gives an introduction to writing and storytelling for screen based media production. Students will have the opportunity to develop their own creative writing techniques informed by critical concepts. Creative exercises and independent application culminate in the production of a short film script followed through to its realisation.

Level 2

Analysing Film and Television as Industries 1 (Core)

Students will have the opportunity to examine the political, commercial and cultural determinants behind the history, current organisation, and potential futures of the UK audiovisual production environment, including how it relates to the US and Europe.

British Television Drama (Option)

Drama is a key component of TV in the UK, carrying out a Public Service function and creating a sense of National Identity. The module considers continuing series (soap operas), drama serials, single plays and television films, situation comedy and comedy drama, underpinned by a survey of critical approaches.

Children’s Film and Television (Option)

This module investigates and analyses the debates about and developments in children’s film and television, largely in the UK but drawing on the USA, for elements of comparison informed by politics, ideology and economics.

Class, Power and Performance on Stage and Screen (Option)

This module draws on the renewed interest in the 21st century in social class by analysing classed identities on stage, TV and in film in a variety of largely iconic texts of the 20th and 21st-centuries. The module begins in the mid-20th century, focusing particularly on the implications of aesthetic form and genre for class construction and performance. Examples of forms, genres and styles include social realism, kitchen-sink drama, the TV sitcom, post-Brechtian, experimental and post-dramatic texts as well as genres such as crime and horror. Key figurations of classed identity include: ‘angry young (wo)men’; the ‘working class Tory’; screen mediations of ‘we’re all middle class now’; ‘upper-class decadence’; the figure of the ‘chav’; ‘prole’ or ‘poverty porn’ and social abjection.

East Asian Cinemas (Option)

A guide to specific films and accompanying theoretical concepts. Key films provide a platform for debating the political, institutional and cultural context of individual cinemas and regions in an increasingly globalised industry where audiences and producers are exposed to a variety of film styles. Critical engagement and debate are encouraged within the broader structure of World Cinema, alongside cultural and globalisation studies.

English for Academic Purposes (media) (Option)

This module aims to support students’ understanding and use of English language in the context of the media, and thereby enhance their ability to meet the demands of academic study at the University of Lincoln.

Film and Television Study Period Abroad (Erasmus) (Option)

The Klagenfurt Erasmus Exchange Programme is an optional module of study for the award of the BA Film & Television degree. As part of the three-year course, some students may study for the duration of Term 1 of Level 2 at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. The target modules of study include areas of practical and theoretical studies comparable with those of Level 2 study for the Film & Television award at Lincoln.

During the term abroad, Lincoln students will be based in the Institute of Media and Communication Studies and will share classes and modules of study with peers from Austria and other European countries. Not only will students be living and socialising in another culture, providing opportunities to study their respective countries, they will also have an opportunity to engage, free-of-charge, in an intensive German-language module for three weeks before term begins (although academic and practice teaching and learning will be in the medium of English for Lincoln exchange students, except in rare instances when a student may be fluent in German).

Film and Television Study Period Abroad (USA) (Option)

The Minnesota State University Moorhead USA Exchange Programme is an optional module for the award of the BA Film and Television Degree. As part of the three-year course, some students may study for the duration of Term 1 of level 2 at Minnesota State University Moorhead USA. The target units of study include areas of practical and theoretical studies comparable with those of Level 2 study for the Film and Television Award at Lincoln.

During the semester abroad, students will share classes and units of study with local students. Not only will students be living and socialising in another 'culture' providing opportunities to study their respective countries, they may also have an opportunity to examine USA media industry practice through optional Internships for exchange students. The Moorhead-Fargo twin cities also offer practical opportunities for students to engage with USA production companies including, Fox, ABC and Prairie Public TV (PBS), all of whom have local bases.

Film Production Projects (Option)

This module aims to enable students to further develop skills in single camera production and apply them to a range of genre projects. Lectures look to present best practice in production techniques and offer stimulus for idea development in production projects. Workshops will target the development of technical skills in camera operation, lighting, sound recording, post production, non-linear editing and multi track facilities as well as creative approaches to production and directing. Seminars aim to provide a programme of student support for production teams conducting a range of creative projects.

Film, Television and Creative Vision (Option)

Three different determinants for a film or broadcast text will be considered - the author, the genre and the production/distribution institution. Students will be given the opportunity to debate the relative importance of these three determinants to a number of case studies. This analysis will be underpinned through a consideration of the development and utility of each of the approaches.

Games Cultures (Option)

Play is a ubiquitous activity, and games (in all their forms) have a long history and an influence that stretches beyond the game-space itself. In recent times, computers (and other trends within media and society) have lead to an exponential growth in the cultural, social and commercial importance of games, which have likewise become more sophisticated, becoming an important media form which has affected other media and culture generally. This critical studies theory module will aim to consider, evaluate and analyse the phenomena of games and game cultures in the 21st century.

Globalisation and Contemporary Culture (Option)

This module aims to provide an overview of conceptual themes and issues within the culture industry and the arts in relation to globalisation. Debates brought forward include: national and cultural identity, global representation, global technologies, multiculturalism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism and global activism channels.

Hollywood Musical (Option)

'The module will look at the history and development of the Hollywood musical as one of Hollywood’s most popular and important film genres, from its beginnings in the early sound era to the integrated musical of the 1940s and 1950s to cult films like The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and more recent successes such as Moulin Rouge (2001), High School Musical 3: Senior Year (2008), Mamma Mia! (2008) and La La Land (2016).

We will watch together a number of significant films and will dill discuss structural, stylistic and thematic issues in the context of scholarly literature. Stardom and the function of the star performance will be considered and we will explore the musical’s representation of cultural issues in a variety of contexts such as race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and gender'.

Media, Controversy and Moral Panic (Option)

This module explores the history of media controversy and ‘moral panic’ during the twentieth century. It is designed to introduce students to media texts (especially films and television programmes) that have sparked debate and extreme differences of opinion among audiences in Britain and America. Students will be expected to engage with a range of films, television programmes and primary source material, which may include newspapers and television news broadcasts from the Media Archive of Central England (MACE).

Multi Camera Projects (Option)

This module will include advanced studio production techniques, programme development, planning, script development, role practice, set design, graphics/overlays, lighting and programme running paperwork. Exercises are designed to help students to develop advanced studio practices, facilitating the production of work to an industry standard.

Practices of Listening (Option)

A broad look at audio-culture from the twentieth century to the present, offering challenge and insight to Film & TV specialists. Vision is often privileged, resulting in a relative paucity of language for discussing sound. This problem is addressed, looking at texts from key theorists and practitioners, considering sound not in addition to vision, but independently, in music, radio, art and daily life.

Public Service Broadcasting (Core)

Students are given the opportunity to study the concept, history and possible future of Public Service Broadcasting in the UK. The implications of broadcasting policy and reports from government committees on broadcasting will be considered in relation to the formation of the concept of Public Service Broadcasting.

Realism in Narrative Fiction (Option)

This module aims to develop an understanding of the complex problem of realism in film and media studies as it relates to fictional narrative forms. Students will have the opportunity to engage with academic debates around realist texts and examine these in relation to historical, contemporary and potential examples.

Representing Difference (Option)

Methods of analysis of media representations and approaches to representing difference will be considered in this module as well as issues such as gender, nationality and ethnicity apparent in film & broadcast media. A range of critical approaches will be considered and contrasted and Post-colonial theory and Third Cinema will be utilised in relation to these.

Script and Screenwriting Projects (Option)

Initially elements of craft will be presented in lectures and practised during workshops as students create their own short scripts. Students can develop scripts from an initial idea through to final draft. Students will also have the opportunity to study the craft of writing longer scripts for radio, film and TV, supported by an analysis of the craft of writing for these media.

Society, Aesthetics and Digital Media (Option)

Media are inseparable from the processes by which societies change themselves. However, they can also be conceived as having their own vitality. In other words, media are sites of complex agency. Developments in media technology express and embody mutations of society, power and the human. In relation to a range of social, cultural and political concerns, we will explore how digital media technologies organize our existence, our perception of reality and our capacity to imagine alternative ways of living. Today, as digital media become increasingly interrelated, networked and convergent, we are moving across the ‘form-barrier’ and entering a new, fluid and hybrid post-broadcast media ecology. This module interrogates the transformation and reconfiguration of our everyday lives and experiences in the new media ecology.

Television and Screen Entertainment (Option)

Through a critical examination of contemporary factual television and online culture, this module aims to show that this can be understood as having been dramatically reconfigured in recent years by socio-political and commercial pressures and their associated entertainment values and changing discourses of selfhood.

Women in and at the Movies: Stars, Icons and Audiences (Option)

This module is concerned with the cultural construction of womanhood, the 'female' and notions of femininity: the economic and cultural value of the female film star to Hollywood, the development of female film genres or the feminization of certain genres, how debates about female identity inform models of spectatorship, with respect to both psychoanalysis and ethnography.

Level 3

Exploitation Cinema (Option)

Examines the cultural significance of so-called exploitation films, which can reveal (and revel in) themes, images and narratives suppressed from the mainstream, dealing with lurid, scandalous subjects in a seemingly excessive, gratuitous manner. Some theorists argue that perceived ‘excess’ is a foundation for developing new critical methods, providing a fascinating alternative to approaches more comfortably contained within ‘classical’ systems.

Film and Television Under Pressure (Core)

Investigates current challenges and difficulties facing film and TV and resultant complications in studying them. One-way production and consumption processes compete with non-linear, responsive or interactive “media“ such as the internet, social networking and computer games. Film and TV are stretching to fit these developments, with fascinating, often unpredicable, consequences.

Film/TV Production Project (Option)

One advanced concept-led project or project portfolio using technologies centred upon Single Camera, Multi Camera or Scriptwriting; an opportunity to produce practical work to an advanced level of creativity and to undertake interdisciplinary production with students on other School courses as appropriate.

Hollywood cinema in the 1980s (Option)

Cinema is an integral part of our culture and tells us about society; like any cultural product, cinema does not exist in a vacuum. It communicates ideas, value systems and cultural beliefs, desires, dreams, anxieties, fears and needs of a given society at a given time, and it does so through different constructions of gender, sexualities, whiteness, ethnicity, race, age, social class and cultures. Taking into account a broad range of films and genres (from rom-com, drama and erotic thriller, to animation, musical, neo-noir, action and sci-fi), as well as a variety of theoretical approaches from (but not limited to) feminist film theory, philosophy, post-feminism, psychoanalysis, stardom and cultural studies; and combining textual analysis with background reading, this module will examine and critically evaluate a range of Hollywood films produced and released in the 1980s addressing the relations between their textual form and their cultural context.

Hollywood Cinema in the 70s (Option)

This module surveys and assesses a period that represents a break with a range of ideological, aesthetic and commercial traditions together with a process of retrenchment and recuperation. Post-classical Hollywood saw both films and the industry experience ideological and socio-cultural upheaval, demonstrated through cinematic modes of representation, industrial re-structuring and artistic transformations.

Journalists on the Screen (Option)

The purpose of this module is to examine and critically compare the different representations of journalists to be found in film and assess the relation between these portrayals and continuing moral and political issues faced by the profession. The module expects students to study movies in which journalists are portrayed as leading characters.

Literature, Film and Gender (Option)

This module explores a wide range of gender topics (masculinities, the backlash against feminism, crossdressing, queer theory, and transgendering) through a variety of literary texts and films. Shakespeare, Ibsen, Hardy, and Woolf, are considered alongside more popular fiction by writers such as Susanna Moore, and films, including Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and The Crying Game.

Media Independent Study (Core)

A 10,000-word dissertation is the culmination of the student's undergraduate investigation into the structures and debates surrounding cultural production and takes the form of an extended essay. Regular support and supervision ensures that the chosen subject facilitates involvement with issues relevant to contemporary media practice.

Representing the Unrepresentable (Option)

Schindler’s List (1993) met critical acclaim and commercial success – but furore in some quarters, not only for how it represented the Holocaust but for daring to represent it at all. Using this example as a reference point, the module critically examines several moving picture accounts of the Holocaust in the context of long-standing debates around the nature, ethics, and function of documentary, drama-documentary, and fictionalisation.

Science Fiction in Film and Television (Option)

Analyses the range and diversity of a genre encompassing many highly popular texts. Metaphor and allegory are explored to understand how science fiction has been appreciated and has developed from cult to mainstream acceptance and popularity. Innovation and cross-fertilisation of generic forms are also be considered.

†The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

Additional Costs

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs.

With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost. Where there may be exceptions to this general rule, information will be displayed in a section titled Other Costs below.

Other Costs

There are no mandatory additional activities, which will incur a cost on this course.

Project costs can vary depending on the nature of the practical work chosen by the student. Students are asked to consider costs when proposing a project. There are funds currently available within the School to students at all levels to provide support with such projects.

Study abroad outside of Europe

Exchange students applying to study outside of Europe do not pay tuition fees at their host university.

Participants will usually be responsible for all other costs themselves, including travel, accommodation, visas, insurance, vaccinations and administrative fees at the host institution.

Students going on exchange keep their entitlement to UK sources of funding such as student loans and should apply to their awarding body in the normal way, indicating that they will be studying abroad.

If your time away is a mandatory part of your degree programme, you may be entitled to extra funding. You should ask your funding body about this.

You may also be able to apply to your LEA or the SAAS for further funding to assist with travel expenses - contact them to enquire.
