Today’s language of screen music has shifted. While many scores still provide a musical commentary on the action, others find a way to integrate music into the fabric of the film itself, creating a seamless weave analogous to the camerawork or editing, to the assimilation of music into the sound world of the film as a whole. Sound design and music grow ever closer - in fact, the roles of sound designer and composer are... [+]

MA Screen Studies plunges you deep into the latest debates around the function and importance of screen based media within a rapidly-changing media landscape. Drawing on a combination of film and television theory, the Screen Studies master’s degree at Birmingham School of Media, encourages you to actively participate in, and contribute to the development of ideas in the field and to the strong research culture of the school. This media theory geared master’s degree, available on-campus or by distance learning, gives you space to think about the ways in which audiences make sense of media, as well as the formal and aesthetic qualities of media texts, as a way into exploring your own practice or scholarly or media research interests. Convergence Culture The point of departure for MA Screen Studies is what Henry Jenkins famously described as ‘convergence culture.’ Increasingly, audiences watch television online, through mobile or tablet devices, and access movies through a range of platforms and formats, cinema being just one. The ability to make and broadcast video has begun to change the ways in which we understand the relationships between producers and consumers. Media convergence is about much more than technological change, and in this master’s degree you will explore new ways of thinking about production, distribution and consumption of screen-based media and our relationship to it. Key Facts The Screen Studies MA reflects the changing nature of the media industries and the need for postgraduate study to cross disciplinary boundaries. The master’s degree is a mix of theory and practice, determined by you. You will be actively involved in assessment design; you produce the work that you want to be assessed. The MA course is adaptable and designed to reflect your individual interests and needs. You'll be taught by a team of highly active academic researchers and media practitioners. [+]
