Equal balance of theory and practical work

When you join our creative, compelling and critical Department of Media Arts you will be taught by world-class scholars and media practitioners with substantial industry experience.

Our BA Film, Television and Digital Production is one of the few in the country to place an equal weight on the teaching of practice and theory, with our students pursuing and developing their practical and creative skills as well as fostering their analytical and critical faculties in the study of media history and theory.

The distinctive features of our degree programme includes a strong emphasis on the practice of film, television and contemporary media as creative arts and a focus on the theory and history of film and television.

This genuinely unique equal balance between theory and practical work make our degrees creative, critical and compelling.

We're also highly rated for employability.
