    Course Summary

    Falmouth University’s MA degree in Film and Television is designed to help students engage with the world of screen media entertainment on an artistic and critical level. You’ll study digital culture in the historical, social, political and artistic context, and learn how to effectively challenge it on its merits and flaws.

    You’ll largely direct and define your own education, choosing an area of practice in which to specialise, and one I which to base your future career. You’ll be able to address the increasingly hazy boundaries between art and technology, between film and television, and between the production and consumption of media generally.

    This course also conveys a wide range of ‘general employability’ skills which could improve your ability to find work or your chances for promotion within your current organisation. As a part of this commitment to job skills, you will have the opportunity to explore many skills workshops and work placements as you study.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning & Teaching

    Falmouth University’s MA in Film and Television is delivered via modules, each of which are taught to small, focused groups.  You’ll explore interdisciplinary modes of study, absorbing concepts drawn from traditional film and television studies, philosophy, English, journalism, sociology and cultural studies, just for a start. Whilst many students do go directly into their own practices upon graduation, others continue their academic careers at the PhD or research degree level.

    Career Possiblities

    This degree is designed to make students employable in a wide range of roles within the creative and broadcasting industries, but it is just as useful for those who sights are set on careers in research and academia. Many recent graduates have founded careers in film festival or arts curatorship, marketing in a digital or social media context, technical roles in production or post production, or indeed postgraduate studies in the arts or humanities.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in an MA degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned an undergraduate degree or some other relevant Level 6 qualification, but other qualifications are also accepted. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An excellent IELTS score of 6.5 overall with no segment less than 6.0 would qualify, for example.
