At the beginning of the 21st century, the cultural sector was playing an increasingly significant role in public policies; politically, socially and economically. The cultural industries, such as the film industry, are now a particular focus of this attention because of their potential to bridge the perceived gap between culture and commerce, that is, their capacity simultaneously to enhance cultural life and generate wealth. In this context, there is a strong awareness of the importance of professionalism in cultural management.

The MA Film and Cultural Management is designed for students who wish to combine the study of film at postgraduate level with a knowledge of cultural management.... [-]

MA in Global Cinemas and the Transcultural

Duration: 1 Year Full Time, 2 or 3 Years Part Time

Entry Requirements: Minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent)

Mode of Attendance: Full Time or Part Time

The MA in Global Cinemas and the Transcultural offers students the unique opportunity to study in-depth regional cinemas outside the now standard research topographies, both geographical and theoretical, of mainstream cinema studies, so opening up avenues for advanced research in areas and methodologies as yet untapped. Alternatively, it provides an avenue of study for those simply wishing to obtain a post-graduate qualification in Cinema Studies without being confined to a European- and/or American-centric world-view.The degree is designed around a compulsory core module, Cinema, Nation and the Transcultural, that simultaneously challenges existing critical paradigms defining 'national cinema' in the simplistic terms of geographical zones of production and reception, while offering alternative methodological approaches to the study of cinema within the local/global, inter-cultural contexts of the post-modern world. The elective elements of the degree allow students the opportunity to specialize in one or more of the many regional cinemas on offer in the School: Japanese, Chinese (mainland, Hong Kong & Taiwanese), mainland and maritime South East Asian, Indian, Iranian, Middle Eastern and African). It also enables students to combine specialist film studies knowledge with a minor module in an Asian or African language or to advance their social and cultural knowledge of a given region through an ethnographic module. Alternatively, through our links with University of... [-]
