UCL's MA in Film Studies covers an exceptionally broad range of world cinemas, and of conceptual approaches to the study of film and related media.
UCL is home to a thriving research community in film and related media. We supervise projects on a wide range of topics relating to cinema history and theory. Graduate students from UCL have gone on to produce significant work in the field, and have taken up academic positions across the world.
Film Studies at UCL is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary programme, operating under the aegis of the Centre for Intercultural Studies and drawing on the expertise of staff from a wide range of departments.
In recent years UCL has made a major commitment to refurbishing its multimedia infrastructure for the study of film and related media. This includes building a significant collection of print and visual materials, new facilities for group teaching in video and DVD modes, and substantial new information technology resources.
The Film Studies programme hosts conferences and regular research seminars including papers from UCL staff, visiting scholars and filmmakers, and postgraduate students. Regular events are also held at the University of London Library in Senate House.
