Education and Training Profile 2017:

Launched in September 2013, University College Cork’s new BA in Film and Screen Media offers a thorough education in the history, values, aesthetics and ideology of the moving image. Led by internationally recognised experts, and with a thriving visiting speakers and guest practitioners component, this BA will immerse students in the history of filmmaking through the study of films from around the world, from the birth of cinema to the age of the Internet.

According to Barry Monahan, PhD, the three-year undergraduate course will feature modules in screenwriting and filmmaking led by university staff and other experienced industry practitioners. These will be accompanied by short courses on film editing.

"All of these practical modules are designed to complement and be complemented by the core theoretical, analytical and historical courses, and they provide a solid grounding in, and experience of, practical aspects of filmmaking," Dr Monahan said.

The BA will prepare students for the challenges of our society and our evolving technologies, and help equip them with the skills for careers in the media, the culture and creative industries, teaching, journalism, or for further study and research at postgraduate level.

The degree aims to offer a blend of theoretical and practical courses, with the core group of lecturers including Dr Monahan, Dr Gwenda Young and Prof Laura Rascaroli - all of whom are responsible for the delivery of modules in film theory, history and aesthetics.

The programme is unique in its combination of film studies and screen media (internet, mobile social media, computer games). It offers practical modules and workshops in digital filmmaking and writing for the screen. Leaving Cert entry requirements are expected to be broadly in line with Arts subjects in UCC.

"The course is designed for anybody who is passionate about the study and analysis of film, and interested in the area of screen media, more broadly," Dr Monahan added. "While this is not a vocational course strictly designed to produce filmmakers ready to enter the market after three years, valuable practical experience gained will enhance individuals' understanding of, appreciation of, and analytical engagement with film and screen media."

MRes in Film and Screen Media

College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences 
Duration – 1 year full time

The MRes in Film and Screen Media is a one-year graduate degree based on coursework and training, and a major research project. The degree provides the opportunity for students to develop a deeper understanding of the subject by engaging in a sustained research project, while acquiring skills that will serve them in their career development or in continuing with their fourth-level studies.

The MRes offers training in project management, research skills, digital and editing skills, or qualitative data analysis, and at the same time provides greater flexibility precisely because the taught components are reduced (with respect to a taught Master’s) and because the student will work, under supervision, on an extended project based on his or her individual research interest. For these reasons, this degree will appeal to a wide range of students, including those who might already be employed or who are engaged in life-long learning.

For entry requirements and more information: https://www.ucc.ie/en/filmstudies/mres/

Entry Requirements:

To be considered for registration as an MRes candidate, an applicant will normally have a primary degree at Second Honours level, Grade I or the equivalent.

Students may progress to PhD level.
