Screen Media & Cultures

M.Phil Degree

Screen media — film, television, video, digital arts — are the focus of a rich and rapidly evolving array of research initiatives in the humanities and social sciences.

The Cambridge M.Phil in Screen Media and Cultures is designed both for students whose first degree is in a discipline other than film or media studies, and who wish to develop their interests in relation to the moving image; and for students whose first degree is in film or media studies, and who wish to develop their interests in relation to at least one other discipline.

Students receive advanced training in the interdisciplinary study of the history and theory of modern screen media. The moving image is explored in relation both to the history and theory of modern culture in general, and to the history and theory of other media (literature, music, the visual arts, architecture).
