The university has recently launched a new master’s course in Film Studies which incorporates the expertise of numerous Schools from within the faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures. Students will have the opportunity to explore the relationship between contemporary film and society, as well as investigating the history and theory of cinema. The course also focuses on specialised filmmaking skills and the film industry itself.
Students have the chance to explore a topic in the area of film or cinema and write a dissertation on the subject. Alternatively, there is the option of writing a shorter dissertation and combining this with a practice-based project.
In order to qualify for the course, students will need to demonstrate the necessary level of English language proficiency, which is a score of IELTS 6.5 overall and no score lower than 6.0 in any component. The Faculty also offers a number of scholarships available for academically excellent and deserving students.
Students choosing to study at the University of Leeds will benefit from the broad portfolio on offer in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures. It has one of the largest subject and course offerings among the Russell Group of universities. Further, the university is placed 70th in the world for Arts and Humanities (QS World Rankings by Subject 2019).
Professor Frank Finlay, Executive Dean, Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures, noted, "Students and researchers in our faculty benefit from a wealth of opportunities thanks to the strength of our academic expertise and the breadth of disciplines we offer. Together we are able to make a real impact on the world and bring benefits in cultural, economic and societal ways."
