Making the Cut

The MA in Film and Screen Media at University College Cork prepares to welcome its second cohort
05 Sep 2017 :
This exciting new MA offers those passionate about film and screen media the chance to learn more about cinema and new media, and to create their own film epics.

The MA in Film and Screen Media combines theory and practice, with an emphasis on encouraging academic skills and creativity (in filmmaking; film/media journalism; cultural administration). Specialized tuition in the areas of film and screen media and digital filmmaking is complemented by ample opportunities to meet and be taught by professionals and experts, visiting speakers and guest practitioners. This year, Film and Screen Media is delighted to host writer and actor Mark O'Halloran as its 2017-18 UCC/Arts Council Film Artist in Residence. Furthermore, the MA will again participate in the European University Film Award — an award of the European Film Academy (EFA) and Filmfest Hamburg presented and voted for by university students across Europe.

The MA programme reflects the broad spectrum of research profiles and interests of Film and Screen Media staff and is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge of the history, theory and aesthetics of international film and the emerging field of screen media. With its combination of theory and practice, as well as its interface with the Industry, the MA offers students a programme of study that is simultaneously extensive, eclectic and in-depth.

The unique “stream” approach and range of learning methods of the MA means that students have greater flexibility in shaping the kind of programme they want, and can pursue their interests in theoretical and cultural studies, creative practice, critical writing, or the culture industry. Students can avail of a selection of option modules in film studies, in filmmaking, in cultural/film studies, as well as a core module that offers advanced-level studies in film and screen media. Topics covered in the programme include: amateur filmmaking: theory and practice; the essay film; archives and curatorship; music and cinema; writing on cinema; mobile filmmaking; new media & new technologies: theory and practice; feminism/gender studies and film; national cinemas; independent cinema.

In addition to the taught modules, students can choose what kind of final project to undertake under expert one-to-one supervision, be it a research-focused dissertation or a creative practice-based portfolio.

The MA in Film and Screen Media is open to candidates with a BA degree in a Humanities subject, who have taken some undergraduate modules in Film and/or Media Studies and related subject areas, or who can demonstrate equivalent familiarity with and expertise in the subject.
