This programme enables you to develop greater capacity for independent critical and interpretive analysis of global cinema through our diverse selection of research-led modules. We offer a critical study of contemporary film theory and the history of cinema with an emphasis on transnational cinemas and cultures.

For those passionate about putting theory into practice, we provide optional modules which are project-led. We also offer you the flexibility to submit either a traditional independent research dissertation or to undertake a practice-based project accompanied by a critical written piece for your final major research project.
